First Reading and Annotation
Listen to a masterful reading of a passage from “The Palace Thief” from “Back at St. Benedict’s, furthermore, I saw that my words...” to “and it was at that moment I realized he was cheating" (pp. 164–168).
Module 1, Unit 2-Lesson 3
In this lesson, students read and discuss the next section of “The Palace Thief,” from “Back at St. Benedict’s, furthermore, I saw that my words” to “and it was at that moment I realized he was cheating” (pp. 164–168). Students explore how Hundert’s actions surrounding the “Mr. Julius Caesar” competition help contribute to the development of a central idea.
Students discuss their homework and listen to a masterful reading. This reading familiarizes students with the lesson’s text excerpt and allows them to build off of their homework analysis as a foundation for the discussion of an emerging central idea. Students engage in evidence-based discussions, during which they collaborate to investigate the weight of the decisions that Hundert makes before and during the competition, as well as how these choices further develop a central idea. Students complete a brief written response to assess their analysis of the relationship between Hundert’s actions and a central idea. For homework, students reread the section of the text and respond to the following reflective writing prompt: Describe the impact that Sedgewick’s cheating has on himself and on Hundert.
