This lesson is designed to help students determine the difference between what information is certain and what information is uncertain throughout the text. The lesson begins with a rereading aloud of the text. Students then independently read the sections "Pocahontas the Prisoner!" and "Pocahontas Marries a Settler." Students then may work in small groups or with partners to revisit the text and answer the text dependent questions, recording their answers on their student notes sheets. The focus question is then answered independently. Special Materials: Student notes sheet, text.
