Topic:
 Tuck Everlasting is a book by Natalie Babbit. Its about a young girl who meets the Tuck family and discovers the "meaning of life."
Content:
 key vocabulary ch. 1-6: Bovine- slow moving or patient; like an ox or cow. Burly- strongly built or muscular Faltered- hesitate Galling- annoying Irrelevant- not important Meager- not enough Melancholy- Sad or depressed Reluctantly- unwillingly Tolerantly- showing patience Tranquil- calm
Goals:
 My goals for this lesson are for the students to enjoy reading a classic, have fun enriching their reading skills, and for the students to have a better understanding of life.
Objectives:
 I believe the students will cooperate as best as they can. This will cover Reading Comprehension of Literary Text/Fiction and Reading Comprehension of Literary Text/Theme and Genre.
Materials:
 Since the book was made into a movie, I will be showing the movie at the end of the lesson. This will require a television and the dvd and dvd player.
Introduction:
 I will begin the lesson by giving a brief explanation of the fountain of youth. Then ask the students what they would do if given the opportunity for a drink.
Development:
 I will then pass out the books and give an introduction on the novel.
Practice:
 I will then ask the students to volunteer to read paragraphs of the book aloud. If none volunteer, I will elect. The students will need to read aloud to improve on their reading skills.
Accommodations:
 We will review what they read the night before (each day) and continue reading aloud.
Checking For Understanding:
 At the end of the book, I will be giving a 25 question test on their understanding of the book.
Closure:
 As an award for good grades, I will be showing the movie during class time. This shows appreciation for the students' hard work. I will then offer them the same question about getting to drink from the fountain and we will discuss the responses.
Evaluation:
 I believe this will be really beneficial to the students' developments in their reading. They should do well on the quizzes and tests if they do the reading.
Teacher Reflections:
 We will see how this goes!
