The focus question and the supporting questions for this lesson ask students to go back into the text to dig for details and examples which support the author's thinking. Additionally, students are asked to begin thinking about the historical aspect of manners, an important idea for upcoming lessons and the final writing task. The lesson begins with a teacher read aloud of the text. Next, students are asked to reread the information in the feature box at the end of the article in small groups (pairs or triads could work). At this point, students are asked to explore the questions in their small groups, using a copy of the article and the guided notes sheet. Finally, students should work independently as they complete the focus question on the back of the page. Special Materials: - Student guided notes sheet for each student - Copies of the anchor text for each student
