Day 2: "Raising Raptors"

This lesson focuses on closely examining the text to determine the relationship between baby raptors and their parents. The day begins with an independent rereading of the sections, "Birds of Prey" and "Flight School." Following the reading, students may work with a partner to revisit the text and answer the text-dependent questions. The focus question should be answered independently. 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, a sheet of paper for note taking, and a pencil.
