*Be specific give stepby-step instructions

The teacher will have the students turn to page 42

in their Journeys textbook. The teacher will begin by
reading each vocabulary word aloud. Then have the
students repeat the word as a class to know how to
pronounce it. While saying the words, make a list of
them on the whiteboard. Inform the students to listen
carefully to the story to find the vocabulary words.
(3 minutes)
First, the teacher will begin by reading aloud The
Troublemaker Who Healed a Nation on page T84T85 in the teacher edition. At each vocabulary word,
stop and ask the students what they think the word
means. Then, proceed to tell them the definition.
Continue this until the story is read.
(8- 10 minutes)

Next, the teacher will give a worksheet to each

student with two templates for the Frayer Model. As a
class, the teacher will model an example of one of the
vocabulary words. Once the students understand the
template, allow for them to work individually with a
vocabulary word of their choice. Inform students that
they can use the glossary for looking up the
definitions. If students finish with one early, then allow
them to start a second word. When everyone has
completed at least one word, have the students pair
with a student that has a different vocabulary word to
share with each other. If times allows, have the
students find a different partner.
(15 minutes)
