This lesson focuses on examining an illustration of the raven and how the illustration contributes to the mood in the poem. The day begins with a rereading aloud of the text. Students are then asked to independently reread various specific stanzas in the poem before answering the text-dependent 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 notes sheet . The focus question should be completed independently. Special Materials: Student guided notes sheet; copies of the anchor text for all students; Post-it notes (sticky notes); highlighters
