    Mr Wuffles scares them. Throughout the book we want our students to tell us what they thought was happening. They were really interested in this book and towards the end of this lesson we were running out of time. For the writing activity the students wrote on blank sheets of paper to be the authors of a certain page this book. They wrote down what the aliens were saying and drew some pictures to describe what they wrote. Lesson two mainly focused on the comprehension and content questions for the book that was read. We used five specific statements about cats that the students either agreed or disagreed with them. For example Miss. Chapman said all cats are mean, then the students either said yes or no and explained their answer. Dashara’s answer was very specific she said, “Some cats are not mean and some cats is mean.” Then while reading “A Cat’s View of the World” by Flora Brett we used the CROWD prompts for shared reading. After reading we asked the same five statements to see if they learned anything new. Anticipation guide statements are suppose to help students learn content, comprehension, and develop oral language. The next lesson was focused on having the students identify characters, settings, and major events in the story, “Mutt Dog” by Stephen Michael King was used to accomplish this goal. Once again we used the CROWD prompts to allow the students share their thoughts about the reading. I asked the question, “How do you think the dog felt living in a different…

  • Analysis Of Christopher Marlowe's Tamburlaine

    The concept of monologue may be ambiguous.
