This lesson plan is anchored by the text "A Taste of Sticky Rice: Laos' National Dish" from Smithsonian.com. This lesson focuses on finding evidence in the text to develop an understanding of how the author conveys the idea of eating sticky rice as a joyful experience. The day begins with a rereading of the text. Students are then asked to read the first section about Luck and the informational text on pages 2-4 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.
