This lesson lays the groundwork for the remaining four days of close reading instruction. Through a read aloud, students gain familiarity with the text as well as vocabulary. This lesson explores the use of figurative language in the poem through a series of scaffolded questions. Students may work in pairs or small groups as they return to the text to explore these questions. They will capture their thinking on the guided student notes sheet. The focus question, examining word choice and imagery, should be completed independently. Special Materials: Student guided notes sheet; copies of the anchor text for all students
