Objective:  Students will identify the information they learned in the exposition of the story and add new information to the plot mountain as they read.

Standard:  RL.9.5

WHY?  Authors never do anything accidentally.  It is our job as readers to figure out what the author is doing so we can make sense of the story.

SECOND PERIOD: I keep forgetting to remind you that the vocabulary assessments are cumulative, which means you could have words, roots, prefixes, and suffixes from both lessons one and two on next week's assessment.  The following assessment could have words, roots, prefixes, and suffixes from lessons one, two, and three, etc.  Keep studying all of the words and word parts.

1.  Students will meet in groups of three for three minutes to discuss what they added to the plot mountain exposition box.

2.  We will come together as a class and discuss what could be in the exposition box and what the conflict was which started the rising action.

3.  Students will have the remainder of the period to continue reading.

HOMEWORK:  Read through the end of the story for TUESDAY and add the appropriate information to the plot mountain.  You will have time to read/add to the plot mountain Monday in class.  Continue preparing for the lesson two vocabulary assessment on block day next week.
