The culminating writing task asks the students to infer and synthesize information about the factors that caused Hurricane Katrina to be called a devastating storm. Students have examined the text to look at how the author structured the text and the role of people and nature in the destruction Katrina caused. 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 and their text dependent questions.
