Day 4: "Raising Raptors"

This lesson is designed to help students make connections using different nonfiction text features. The lesson begins with a rereading of the text followed by a partner read aloud. Students may then work in small groups or with partners to revisit the text and answer the text-dependent questions, recording their answers on a sheet of paper. 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.
