After using the previous days to determine the main ideas and some of the choices made by the author, today students will be taking this knowledge and looking at the overall structure of the article. The supporting questions provided here will help students to develop a thorough understanding of paragraph seven, which serves as a shifting point for main ideas in the article. These questions will lead students to be able to determine the overall structure of the article. This understanding of the structure will allow students to successfully write an abstract, or summary of the article, in day five's activity. Special Materials: - Copy of "Ever Wonder Why Babies Drool?" by Howard Bennett - Copy of the Student Guided Notes Sheet - Highlighter to use when referring to the text (optional)
