From defining the characteristics of fiction forms and genres to understanding plot and
character development, introduce elementary students to more-advanced skills and
strategies for understanding and interpreting literary texts. All content is tied to national
standards and benchmarks
9. Materials and Resources Required:
       A. Technology (include location and equipment): Students can access this
       lesson from in class computers, computer lab and home if possible. The
       students will individually log onto their account and go to the directed
       website. From there each student will view one of the 9 segments relating to
       FICTION. This lesson can be utilized by my students in 5th grade but
       function at lower ability level. The visual and auditorial presentation allows
       for understanding (comprehension) without relying on the ability or lack
       thereof to read.

opened questions consisting of 1-2 word answers to alleviate written responses. After
each segment a review will ask the student to name differing Literature genres (type
of story). Students may research other topics presented such as –Cyclops (from
Odysseys) or Ithaca (cross curricula with Social Studies). Students may create
dioramas, posters, models, etc. to demonstrate understanding in ways other than a
written presentation.

Students will be asked to identify PLOT, MAIN IDEA, CONFLICT (main
problem), RESOLUTION (how problem is solved), CHARACTER and
CONCLUSION

      demonstrates understanding.


       B. Enrichment: For the student that enjoys the topic further exploration
       would be encouraged. Demonstrate how to access museums, internet,
       library, etc.


12. Student Assessment:
Students will find the identified part of a story as defined above and point it out to
peers. Short answer quiz - Teacher observation.
