This lesson focuses on explaining how a specific image can enhance one's understanding of the text. The Animal Classification System chart on page 7 is exceedingly complex. It provides information not otherwise conveyed in the text. Today's lesson begins with a rereading read aloud of the text. Students are then asked to read page 7 in partners and discuss the image. Students should capture their thinking on the student guided notes sheet. The focus question should be completed independently. Special Materials: Student guided notes sheet and copies of the anchor text for all students.
