Daily Learning Targets

  • I can demonstrate understanding of the excerpt from Chapter 16 of The Lightning Thief
  • I can compare and contrast what I see and hear when I read the text to what I perceive when I watch the same scene of the film. 

Purpose of Lesson

  • Students read the next chapter of the text and find the gist. Students also unpack unfamiliar vocabulary and answer comprehension questions using inferences and evidence from text. Students view a clip of the film version of The Lightning Thief and engage in a compare and contrast activity, noting similarities and differences between the scene in the film and the same scene in the text.

In Advance

  • Strategically decide how students will accomplish the reading for today’s class. Be mindful of and balance variety with students’ needs and their desire for choice while planning for the reading time during the lessons.
  • Strategically decide on triad groupings to collaborate during the work on the Compare and Contrast Note-Catcher.
  • Review the student tasks and example answers to get familiar with what students will be required to do in the lesson (see Materials list).
  • Cue the film to the correct spot for the scene presented in this lesson.
  • Preread Chapter 16 in The Lightning Thief to identify words or plot points that may challenge students.
  • Prepare copies of handouts for students, including Entrance Tickets (see Materials list).
  • Post the learning targets and applicable anchor charts (see Materials list).
