1 Hook

Activity: Presenting

Show a Prezi to the students that pertains to Realistic Fiction.

After the presentation is done, ask students what some names of books that they have read that would be considered Realistic Fiction.

2 Direct Instruction

Have the students play the game "Stories and Literature" with partners using the "Game Classroom" site on the I-Pads.

Once the students are done, ask them if they correctly identified the Realistic Fiction ones.

Have the students think of a book that they read that they know is Realistic Fiction.

Tell the students that they will be using that book in a little while.

3 Guided Practice

Free, Paid

Divide the students up into two different teams.

Have them play a Kahoot game that was created about Realistic Fiction.

After the game, assess if more information needs to be provided.

4 Independent Practice

Activity: Other — Providing a poster

On the whiteboard, hang up a poster that lists the generalities within a Realistic Fiction novel so that the students can use it if they get stuck thinking about what to present.

Give the students time to think about what scene they are going to reenact, and if they need props.

Tell them it may be best if they write down what they need to do and say.

5 Wrap-Up

Reiterate what Realistic Fiction is.

Tell the students that they must be prepared to present their reenactment tomorrow. Tell them to write a blog post on Edmodo for participation points about their plan as homework.
