This lesson plan is anchored by the text "A Taste of Sticky Rice: Laos' National Dish" from This lesson focuses on finding evidence in the text to develop an understanding of how the author introduces his central ideas about the importance of sticky rice in Laos through a narrative about Luck's obsession with sticky rice and his need to obtain it. The day begins with a rereading of the text. Students are then asked to read the first section about Luck prior to exploring the text-dependent questions. Students may work in small groups or with a partner as they return to the text to explore these questions, capturing thinking on the student guided notes sheet. The focus question 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 for all students.
