Classroom Considerations

Pros

  • The 12-page resource includes a list of the Common Core standards the lesson addresses, the plan, a vocabulary list, a discussion question and sample responses, a Quick Write prompt, and a homework assignment that asks class members to compare Romeo’s initial attitude toward Juliet with his approach toward Rosaline
Cons

  • Some class members may need additional support to keep up with their Accountable Independent Reading (AIR) assignment
  • All 20 lessons in the unit follow the exact same routine
