Lesson Plan


This is an English language arts lesson for grades three through five on studying genres in literature. Through this lesson students will gain an understanding of the literary elements of each genre, improve comprehension by interpreting, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating written text in order to categorize. Students will also be able to identify characteristics of different genres, select genres that interest them, and be able to compare and contrast different works of literature with each other. This lesson spans over ten days and offers a variety of projects using a tic-tack-toe chart on three tiered levels where students can choose their favorite activity in each subject area to create a line based on their interests.
