This lesson addresses how the author uses dialogue and illustrations to help the reader better understand the relationship between Ahmed and his father. The students will take in-depth look at both the writing and the facial expressions of the characters in the illustration. The relationship between Ahmed and his father is an important part of understanding the text, as well as Egyptian culture. 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. (A color copy or projection of the text would be helpful for viewing the illustration.)
