This lesson is day four of close reading instruction. Students now have familiarity with the text through various read aloud and partner reading opportunities. Today's focus question addresses pandemics and how they both occur and can be prevented. Students must use information from the text to determine what a pandemic is, how it spreads and how communities fight back. Students may work in pairs or small groups to complete the supporting questions, but the focus question should be completed independently. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text. Graphic Organizer may be used for note-taking. (Optional)
