Describing Settings and Events

In our Describing Settings and Events lesson plan, students learn strategies for identifying and describing settings and events. Students practice identifying settings and events in text and telling how they’re significant to the story.


Our Describing Settings and Events lesson plan teaches students how to effectively identify and describe the settings and events of a story or other text. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to complete charts for both setting and events in which they describe the setting or event and write how it affects or influences the story. Students are also asked to determine whether specific details are related to setting or event.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe in depth a setting or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text.

    This package is very good, but has the name as another kit!

    I live these lessons, so funny enough my only little complaint is that it has the same name as another lesson plan pack and it was just annoying to open two different lessons to search for the lesson that I was looking to use a second time. Surely that isn't even a real problem. If they could just change the title a little would help organization wise. The resources were very good as I have come to expect!
