This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. The teacher will reread the text aloud and encourage students to focus on the phrase, “Instead, he stretched up on his tiptoes.” The teacher will guide the students through a second reading asking supporting questions. Ultimately, this discussion will lead to the focus question, "Why is Rooster stretching up on his tiptoes and looking at something far away?" This focus question will help the students understand the character of the Rooster, which is necessary for answering the culminating question.
