RL.7.3. Analyze how particular elements of a story or drama interact (e.g., how setting shapes the characters or plot) is the Common Core focus.
Best of all, this lesson splits the text into chunks so that the students can group to do an ever-popular “Jigsaw” activity.
The product is editable in case you want to add or delete any section.
The allusion to the “real” Antaeus is included.
Instead of just reading a short story in class, use this product to teach flashback, plot, character- all tied to the COMMON CORE standard.
