Monday - DO NOW as an introduction to the article that we will read today on winning the lottery. Read article. Partner questions. Discuss and share out. Last chance to ask any questions about tomorrow's literary elements quiz!
Tuesday - Literary elements quiz! Students may use their associative tool list on this quiz. Once all of the students have completed the quiz, we will begin reading "100 Bucks of Happy." This short story perfectly fits with the previous class' article.
Wednesday/Thursday - Finish reading, if we have to. Students will then begin working on the accompanying questions from the short story. We will then share out and discuss as a full class. Once completed, the students will be asked to find a quote from the story that exemplifies internal and external conflict - this will help us next class as we watch a "Twilight Zone" episode that directly deals with conflict.
Friday - "Twilight Zone" episode. Find an example from the episode that illustrates internal and external conflict. Journal response: How does "100 Bucks of Happy" and this "Twilight Zone" episode work together? Share out. Go to library to pick out independent reading book.
