Day 1: "Thank You, Mr. Falker"

In Day 1 of this close reading module, students will be guided toward an understanding of the analogy that Trisha's grandfather told her at the beginning of the story. The analogy is key to the central meaning of the book and will contribute to students' understand of the big takeaway on Day 5 of the module. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text, "Thank you, Mr. Falker."
