This lesson focuses on analyzing the overall structure of a passage to help students learn how the author develops a claim. The lesson begins by rereading the section of the text on page 16 subtitled "Historic Tribes." Yesterday, students began to lay a foundation of understanding about the historic importance of the park; today, they will learn how the park has been an important location for several groups over the years. Students are asked to reread the section of the text before exploring the text-dependent questions. Students may work in small groups or partners as they return to the text to explore these questions, capturing their thinking on the student guided notes sheet. The focus questions should be completed independently. Special Materials: Students should have access to the following materials for this lesson: -Student guided notes sheet -Copies of the anchor text
