Learning Target
Students will read book 6 of The Iliad and demonstrate their knowledge by completing reading comprehension questions.

Opening Session

Last week we read book 1 of The Iliad. Can anyone give me a recap of what happened during Friday’s reading? We will take a few minutes to review the material from last week so you know where we are going into book 6 🙂

Work Session

Ms. Hannah and I will pass out the Book 1 and 6 packets! We are going to continue reading aloud today using the same strategy we have been, where we alternate paragraphs between a student and the teacher.

After we finish reading book 6, you will need to answer the Critical Reading questions at the end of the packet.

Closing Session

Let’s end today by setting up for tomorrow’s opening session! By popular demand, we’re going to be playing KAHOOT!! You will need to get the Kahoot app on your phone and make sure that you know how to operate it. If you don’t have a phone, you’ll need to be proficient with logging onto the Kahoot website and using it from one of the laptops. Get ready to KAHOOT!!

Formative (discussions, notice and wonder, comprehension questions)

Process (scaffolding, annotated text)
