Introducing our new collection of supplementary lessons designed to support multilingual learners and students with language-based disabilities in grades 6-8.
In this Prologue sample lesson, students deconstruct important sentences from the core text, Out of the Dust, into words, phrases, and clauses. By focusing on word choice, symbolism, and figurative language, students deepen their understanding of complex language. This work prepares students to analyze the text in advance of Lesson 20.
Below, we have provided a sample lesson plan for you to see Prologue in action, as well as annotated lessons that highlight effective supports for multilingual learners and students with language-based disabilities.
To support successful implementation of Prologue, we've included free on-demand professional learning for all Prologue users. These videos are designed guide implementation best practices for both teachers and specialists.

Both multilingual learners and students with language-based disabilities benefit from engagement with grade-level content, access to complex texts, and time to build the language skills necessary for successful reading comprehension. This webinar, moderated by Sarah Woodard, National Director for Educational Partnerships on the Great Minds Humanities team, will introduce educators to Prologue, a collection of lessons for Grades 6–8 that build the foundation students need to access high-quality, grade-level materials and develop the confidence to meaningfully participate in Wit & Wisdom.
