Do you follow the Teachers College Curriculum? Are you a new 4th grade teacher or just a teacher who would like and needs more support and guidance on the Interpretation Book Clubs unit? Good news!

This is a 16 lesson power point based on Interpretation Book Clubs that we used at my school for the past 2 years. It is also now known as Detail Synthesis: Close Reading of Fiction. I created the power point and shared it with my 4th grade team, which consisted of brand new teachers to the building and grade. It broke down the unit and each lesson nicely for them. The first 3 slides set you up for the unit. It is important to read those slides. Overall, this power point has 16 sessions, with a total of 93 slides.

The power point includes:

- 93 slides

- A slide for the pre and post assessments

- 16 lessons

- The teaching point slide for the lesson (objective)

- A connection slide

- A teach slide (this is for the teacher to model with or from)

- An active engagement slide (this is for students to try what the teacher just modeled)

- The link slide before you send students off.

- Links to some Pixar videos and short stories.

What is interesting and makes this unit a little tricky is that it does not come with a TC spiral and you have to use the If/Then book to figure it out. You have to be very organized and prepared for this unit as you will work with multiple short stories and you will need to have access to these stories. The point is to make sure all students have access to these stories at any point in the unit because they may also need them for writer’s workshop if you choose to use these stories. If you are following TC in writing as well, then the writing unit correlates to this reading unit as students will write literary essays based on the short stories they are reading and are familiar with. I have provided “suggested” short stories and the links to some of these short stories on a slide. Every school is different and operates differently and supports and resources vary, but many short stories can be found online as a PDF.

My school is a Teachers College reading and writing school so we have had TC facilitators come to our school all the time and do workshops with us. Minilessons are supposed to be 10-12 minutes long, which includes the connection, the teach, the active engagement, and the link. The pre and post assessment stories for this unit can be modified or changed. These were my lesson plans that I passed on to my team, which guided and helped them learn the program and the flow of the minilessons. I hope they can do the same for you, and get you on your way to becoming a fabulous 4th grade reading teacher! Good luck with everything you do!
