This lesson focuses on determining the meaning of domain-specific phrases and words found in an excerpt from the anchor text, "Small Solution, Big Change" by Cameron Keady, from Time for Kids. The day begins with a teacher read aloud of the given section of the text (STEM Solutions). Students will then engage in a close reading of this section. Students will complete a guided notes sheet to capture their thinking concerning the supporting questions from the lesson. The focus question should be completed independently, following a whole group discussion about STEM Solutions found in the selected text. 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 student guided notes
