Anyone have tips/ideas for a 6th grade demo lesson? I have to teach one next week. It's an ELA class, and right now they're doing book clubs. They said I can bring my own text. 30 kids, inclusion class, 45 min lesson. Suggestions they gave: Discussion Higher level/open ended questions to bring to your group discussion Different ways to respond to text. Talking about language in the text My main problem is I'm not used to book clubs and I am familiar with the reading and writing workshop model, but it's not really my specialty. Also, she said the kids don't read on grade level, I would need to bring a 4th -5th grade level text. Thanks!
