Mrs. beattie's 7th Grade
This is where you will find information related to my 7th grade classes.
In this unit, we will be reading the dramatic work "Sorry, Wrong Number" by Lucille Fletcher.
We will be discussing the elements of drama, plot structure, and how dialogue can reveal character and move the plot. We will then view a filmed production of the play and compare and contrast the act of reading versus viewing.
Our language focus will be creating complex sentences using adverb clauses and the students will be creating an Adverb Clause Storybook in class.
In their Close Reader, they should be working on "Comparing Versions of 'A Christmas Carol'" on pgs. 35-42
The text of the chapter can be found here.
I have attached the notes and activities for the first day, as well as the test study guide and SMART targets for this unit.
