Class will read the short story aloud. Teacher will call on students to read a paragraph of the text. The rest of the class will follow along in their textbook. Students should underline in pencil what parts of the story are the most important. Jigsaw method: Students are placed in 5 expert groups. Groups will be assigned a plot element: introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. In the group, the teacher will assign a researcher, text summarizer, organizer, and speaker. After group work is complete, the speaker from each expert group will teach to the rest of the class. Classmates will fill out plot structure diagram with quote from the text signifying each plot point. How have these definitions changed your understanding of the story? Tomorrow we will learn more about Poes biography

RL.9-10.10 (Comprehend stories, drama, poems) L.9-10.3 (Language in different contexts) L.9-10.4 (a-d) (Determine word definition) SL.9-10.1 (a-d) (Group discussion) HS.TT.1 (Use technology and other resources for assigned tasks)

! Plans for Individual Differences: When planning expert and learning groups, the teacher will ensure that
groups have an ideal mixture of academically gifted students. According to social/academic preferences, the teacher will assign roles to students in the expert groups. For instance, if a student is creative but not analytical, they could organize the research in a way to present to the class.
