Grade 4 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 8

TAKING NOTES USING A GRAPHIC ORGANIZER: INFERRING ABOUT WORK AND PLAY IN COLONIAL AMERICA

  • For the partner reading of an unfamiliar and complex piece of informational text, pair stronger readers with those needing more support.
  • This lesson involves chunking text. If appropriate, explicitly name this strategy for students.
  • Review Part C of Work Time (This or That) carefully before the lesson, in order to visualize the activity, which involves students moving to two corners of the room. Choose which questions are most important to ask, since there may not be enough time to have students discuss all four questions.
