The supporting questions found in lessons 1-4 of this close reading module lead students to an understanding of Trisha's journey throughout her school years and her struggle to read. Each supporting question has broken down the culminating writing task by documenting Trisha's struggles on her journey toward learning how to read. Many events lead up to Trisha meeting Mr. Falker, who teaches her to read, inevitably changing her life. The culminating writing task requires students to determine the central message of the book. 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.
