5th Tuesday – Tuesdays with Morrie

The “Fifth Tuesday” in Tuesdays with Morrie is important because it talks about relationships, family, and family that goes beyond blood. These were important points I wanted my students to grasp, so I made worksheets and study guides to help with their learner development.

I read the “Fifth Tuesday” aloud to my students, allowing them to sit on the floor, relax, and follow along with me.
 
After reading, I gave them “The Fifth Tuesday Worksheet” and had them complete it independently. This was my way of having them understand the main concepts without doing a whole-group discussion, which sometimes becomes a few students talking and the majority just sitting there.

Once we had read up to the “Eighth Tuesday” both independently and as a class, I then gave them the 5th-8th Tuesday Study Guide and had them work in groups to try get all the answers. We then went over everything as a class to help them prepare for their test Monday. To read more about the 5th-8th Tuesday Study guide and 5th-9th Quiz, click here.
