Zorba the Greek Daily Lesson Calendar

This set of Lesson Plans consists of approximately 153 pages of tests, essay questions, lessons, and other teaching materials.

Lesson Calendar

Lesson plan calendars give you daily suggestions about what to teach. Determine how long your Zorba the Greek unit will be, then use one of the following calendars to plan out your entire lesson. In some cases, you may want to assign some of the reading over the weekend preceding the unit. This will give students some context for the start of the unit.

Definitions:

  • Review Chapter Abstracts - Chapter abstracts are synopses of each chapter that you can use to review the reading assignments with your students.
  • Daily Lessons - There are 30 daily lessons detailed in this lesson plan. Select a new daily lesson each day.
  • Fun Activities - There are 20 fun activities in this lesson plan. They serve as a way for students to interact with the material in an enjoyable, educational way.
  • Read Aloud in Class - Ask students to take turns reading aloud from where they left off in their most recent reading assignment. Use the Oral Reading Evaluation Form in this lesson plan to evaluate their reading skills.
  • In-Class Handout - An in-class handout can be one of the quizzes/homework assignments, vocabulary games, worksheets, or an essay/writing assignment. It's something the students can comple and turn in during class, or begin in-class and take home to finish as a homework assignment.
