This lesson focuses on establishing Alice's problem and motive, and building on both to explore her character. The White Rabbit's character is also explored in contrast with Alice's, emphasizing her more childlike nature. Most answers to the text-dependent questions can be found by a close reading of Chapter 1. Students may work in small groups or pairs to complete their guided notes sheet. The guided notes sheet should indicate page numbers to help students chunk their reading. The focus question should be completed independently. To guide their responses, a T-chart graphic organizer and sentence starters are provided to accommodate for English Language Learners and students with IEPs. Special Materials: Students should have access to the following materials for this lesson: * Student guided notes sheet * Copies of the anchor text for all students
