Learning Target
Students will review the themes and characters of Things Fall Apart in preparation for their unit test tomorrow.

Opening Session
Turn in your SAGs and let’s take five minutes to talk about what we feel we need to review 🙂

Work Session

Things Fall Apart JEOPARDY!!

After playing Jeopardy, we’re going to read through a passage and answer some questions together. This passage will NOT be on your test,  but this style of read-the-passage-answer-the-questions will make up the bulk of your test, so I want to practice!!

Closing Session
Survey time! I want to get some feedback on this unit, so I’m going to pass around a little survey for you all. It’s anonymous, so please be honest!!

Formative (Jeopardy, SAG check)
