Day 5: "Playing Hooky"

This culminating task is an opportunity for students to connect all the close reading they have done throughout the week. The question expects readers to use details from across the text to support the main idea. Before writing, students should reread the entire text independently. Students should then be permitted to use the previous days' notes as a support while they write their response to today's focus question. Special Materials: Copies of the text "Playing Hooky" for each student Copies of the notes sheet for each student
