This lesson focuses on demonstrating an understanding of key details from the anchor text, "Small Solution, Big Change", by Cameron Keady, from Time for Kids. The lesson begins with the teacher reading the article aloud to students. After listening, students will be expected to closely reread the text by focusing on specific paragraphs to answer guiding comprehension questions with a partner. Students should answer all supporting questions using details from the anchor text. At the completion of this lesson, students will answer a focus question independently. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Each student will need: 1) A copy of the anchor text. 2) A highlighter 3) A copy of the Supporting Text-Dependent Question Graphic Organizer
