This lesson plan is anchored by the text "A Taste of Sticky Rice: Laos' National Dish" from Smithsonian.com. The first lesson showed students how a narrative textual style can be used to introduce the central idea of an informational article. In this lesson, students will demonstrate how the two textual styles of the article, narrative and informational, work together to support the author's central idea. The day begins with a rereading of the text. Students are then asked to read the narrative and the informational text separately 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.
