New Review

Scholars become familiar with tagline literature with the help of the story, Alexander and the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad, Terrible Day by Judith Viort. After a read-aloud and whole-class discussion, leveled groups complete several differentiated activities such as songwriting, playwriting, creating a comic strip, and reflecting on a journal topic.

Instructional Ideas

  • Make copies of each group's list of leveled activities, rubrics, and the anchor activities for learners to read at their own pace without interrupting other workers 
  • Gather a collection of tagline literature for participants to browse before or after they start anchor activities 
  • Invite pupils to share their finished product with their peers, perform a Think, Pair, Share or showcase items  individually in front of the class 
Classroom Considerations

  • Review each activity to prep materials needed for pupils to complete them
