Day 2: "Living with Animals"

In this lesson, we will revisit the article "Living with Animals" by modeling think-alouds and answering text-dependent questions. The goal for this day is for students to understand the "gist" of the article, and get students thinking about what it means to live with animals on a reserve. The focus question of the day is "Why does Jackson help protect the animals near his village?" This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: To ensure all students can see the text, project it onto the board or put the text on large chart paper.
