Read Chapter 4 aloud within Literature Circles. Within circles, each student is responsible for completing the task that their role requires. Each circle will turn in all textual evidence and notes at the end of class.
§ Students need to annotate Chapter 4 in their notes. Students will consider what they learn about Stephen Kumalo during this train ride. Is it direct or indirect characterization?
§ Students will routinely list and define any new or unfamiliar words in the vocabulary section of their notebooks. (CREATE A VOCABULARY SECTION IF YOU HAVEN’T DONE SO)
§ Students will draw the plot diagram from ReadWriteThink (http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/lesson_images/lesson800/IdentifyPlot.pdf ) in their notes. As the story unfolds, they should add to or completed the diagram as needed.
§ Exit Ticket: Each Lit Circle must turn in their findings from the chapter.
