This Instructional Routine partially assesses Performance Indicator: “Write multiple reflections that include personal and world connections, thoughts, and responses to literary texts.” When combined with additional entries throughout the Unit, it serves as an assessment to monitor student growth and application of skills and strategies learned.
During this Instructional Routine, students perform a Focused Reading of the same text used in Daily Lesson 7. Students analyze the internal and external development of the main characters in the short story or novel.
Content Objective: Students analyze the internal and external development of the main characters in a short story or novel in order to support deeper comprehension of the text.
Instruct students to take out their Reader’s Notebook and refer to the chart completed during Daily Lesson 7. Review student responses briefly and explain that today students will analyze how the author developed the characters using a range of literary devices. Display PowerPoint: Literary Devices of Fiction and refer to slide 20. Instruct students to revisit their previous rating of their knowledge of literary devices (elements and techniques). Ask students to revise ratings of their current knowledge of literary devices addressed in Daily Lessons 3-5 on a scale from 1- 4: 1 – I’ve seen the term but am unable to define it. 2 – I can define the term. 3 – I can define and give an example of the term. 4 – I can define, give an example, and use the literary term in my writing.
4. Discuss ratings as a class and create a symbol to represent each of the literary techniques. 5. Distribute Handout: Character Body Biography and copies of the short story or novel. 6. Explain to students that they will engage in a Focused Reading of the short story or novel read previously to analyze the internal and external development of the characters. Instruct students to use the text and their charts in their Reader’s Notebook from Daily Lesson 7 to create a Character Body Biography for one of the main characters in the text. (Students will work in groups.)
