About This Lesson

This is a Unit Plan for a gr. 6 ELA class working on their reading and writing comprehension skills on short stories throughout the course of four weeks.This plan is for low to intermediate middle school ELLs and will help students realize the connections between literature and everyday life.While incorporating short stories such as Raymond’s Run by Toni Cade Bambara and The Parsley Garden by William Saroyan into the unit, students can relate to the characters and topics and make connections (text to text, text to self, text to world) surrounding these stories.Common Core Standard: RL.6.2

Thorough lesson plans and unit overview. The standards that are cited in the plan are both for reading literature and reading informational text. Without having the texts attached or available to determine if they are informational or fiction -- this might cause some confusion.

This looks very good--I will also have to track down the stories.

Excellent outline. I will be requesting these two short stories for my Reading classes next year to help students deal with bullies and bullying.
