teaches Common Core State Standards RL.4.2 http://corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/RL/4/2

Day 5: "The Legend of Keesh"

For today, students will complete a culminating writing task that requires them to integrate their knowledge of "The Legend of Keesh" to discuss and analyze the theme. This will require students to synthesize information from across the story, including focusing on the character of Keesh, covered in the previous four days of lessons. Students can use previous days’ notes (both shared class notes and individual) as a support. Special Materials: Students should have access to their copies of the anchor text, their notes sheets from previous days, and the culminating task sheet.
