Close Read: Communication and Conflict Resolution Strategies
Fourth graders practice their close reading skills with a short text on conflict resolution. Working in pairs, learners read and reread the article Smart Speak by Marilyn Cram Donahue as they identify the main idea and use context clues to understand challenging vocabulary. The class uses the text to begin making a list of rules to improve their school community, as they work toward the long term goal of writing a school constitution. Consider having students create skits to act out the conflict resolution strategies from the article as an extension activity. This is a great resource for teaching how to read closely, and can very easily be adapted to any piece of writing.

Your students already know when they like a story and when they don't, but they may not know that the plots of these stories are shaping that opinion. Like all resources in this series, the two activities and quizzes provided here deal with one specific standard from the Common Core: RL.9-10.5. Your class will learn the basic parts of plot (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and denouement) as well as some more advanced terms such as in medias res and MacGuffin. Activate your pupils' knowledge by introducing these terms and brainstorming examples from well-known movies and books together before they take the multiple-choice quizzes where they have to identify these terms from various examples.

The Relocation of the Cherokee in North Carolina
Considering a study of the Trail of Tears? Check out this resource before you begin. Class members use maps to chart the movement of the Cherokee from the 18th through the 19th centuries. They consult primary and secondary sources to develop an understanding of how these Native Americans were perceived by the early settlers and the clash of cultures that lead to the wars that took place. The exercise ends with a reading of the Joint Resolution of 1834 which led to the removal of all Cherokee from North Carolina. A powerful look at culture clash.
Conflict and Plot
Analyze conflict and plot in literature. To begin, review the terms conflict, plot, exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution with the class. Working in groups and using TI-83 Plus (because the activity is designed for use with Texas Instruments calculators), learners read an assigned short story and analyze the plot. Each group's findings are discussed as a class. Calculators are not necessary to complete this useful lesson.
