The Tale of Two Spinners Lesson Plan including guided reading script and quiz
Each 'package' consists of lesson plan plus guided reading script (6 speakers) plus quiz/reading comprehension.
These resources accommodate both small group and all class engagement. As explained in the lesson plan, whilst a group of six speakers read the script, the rest of the class (divided into teams?) has to follow in order to answer questions that follow. There are also some ideas for follow up discussion, time permitting.
Time allowance is flexible - from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how much of the package is used.
This script, along with four others (Theseus and the Minotaur, The Gorgon's Head, Pandora's Box and Odysseus and the Cyclops) is available as one product - The Ancient Greek Myths Guided Reading Scripts - for £14.99

Arachne: Just because she overheard me saying I was the greatest weaver in the world! That I could out-weave any goddess any day! That mine was the skill to surpass all skills! That ….

Zeus: A blatant misuse of your powers, daughter!
