This lesson launches Module 2B and begins to build students’ background knowledge about the universal appeal of William Shakespeare’s works. As students engage in a Gallery Walk, they use images to help build this background knowledge. Students also read along as the teacher reads aloud a text that further develops their background knowledge about Shakespeare. This read-aloud gives students a chance to hear a fluent reader model difficult text. This is a “pure” read-aloud, with no interruptions. Read to model fluency and help build understanding.
