Day 4 represents a critical transition between the lessons on days 1-3 and the culminating writing task students will complete on Day 5. On previous days, students explored the important idea in the text that bears are dangerous. Today, students will take that idea one step further and realize that, although bears are dangerous, the author is arguing that steps can be taken to protect both bears and humans. This central idea is prominently featured in the writing prompt on Day 5. Special Materials: Copies of text and student response worksheets
