A Monster Calls / Monsters SOW

A Monster Calls / Monsters SOW

This is a short SOW which lasted for about 4-5 100 minute lessons. Students write a film review based on A Monster Calls and then create/design their own monster! My year 8 students really enjoyed doing this at the end of term. Ideal for cover lessons or some one off lessons!

PARCC Aligned Practice Test Activities Poetry and  Informational Text  (Grade 7) (Prove IT 2.0)

PARCC Aligned Practice Test Activities Poetry and Informational Text (Grade 7) (Prove IT 2.0)

Included is a PARCC -Aligned practice test including informational text and poetry comparison. The questions involve the following areas: - Main idea - Two Part questions (Parts A and B) - textual evidence - Text structure - theme - context clues - similarities and differences What makes this activity so much more valuable is that is includes the Whole Brain strategy of Prove It 2.0 strategies. This technique encourages the students to indicate whether EACH ANSWER CHOICE is correct or incorrect based on the text. The students must write a response in their own words for all answer choices. This strategy allows the students to think about their way of thinking through verifying or justifying their answer choices with textual evidence. This technique has worked beautifully for my students and has been proven to improve standardized test scores. Educator TIP: It is even more beneficial for the students to talk about their answer choices with higher order thinking discussion stems: " I think that answer choice A is incorrect because, according to the text, ________________________________. " In essence, seeing, thinking, and speaking helps to bring about a critical thinking experience, that eventually, with practice, become an effective tool in comprehending complex text.

Sheet 2 may read Poetry Aid but the vast vocabulary can also be used to help them write their memory sheet.

Reading Cycle Professional Development Notes

Reading Cycle Professional Development Notes

This product contains the notes from a professional development session that I attended. It deals with teachers being able to ensure that each student is effectively comprehending text during close reads. To be made clear, during close reading sessions, it is possible that instructors may get what is called a “false positive” or indication that a student understands a concept of the text when they actually do not. **False Positive Prevention Method - ** occurs when students are able to write about and discuss a text with some accuracy after gleaning an understanding of a text from what teachers and peers says about the text, NOT from their own understanding about the text. The Reading Cycle Strategy prevents this situation by taking the READ-DISCUSS-WRITE method to the next level through the following steps: Read-Discuss- Read Read-Write-Read Read -Write Discuss Read-Write -Discuss Read-Discuss-Write-Revise Each of these steps are explained within this product.
