This lesson focuses on finding evidence in the text to develop an understanding of the narrator's state of mind as well as the setting. This day begins with a rereading aloud of the text. Students are then asked to read specific stanzas independently prior to answering the text-dependent questions. Students may work in small groups or pairs as they return to the text to explore these questions, capturing their thinking on the student guided notes sheet. The focus question should be answered independently. Special Materials: Students guided notes sheet; copies of the anchor text for all students; Post-it notes (or sticky notes); highlighters for students
