This lesson focuses on teaching students to annotate a text. When students annotate a text, it helps them to comprehend and analyze what they are reading. This packet contains two poems, the poem "Oranges" by Gary Soto and the poem "Guilt" by Jed Chambers.
In the lesson, teachers will first model the process of annotation with the poem "Oranges". Next, students will work independently to annotate the poem "Guilt". Sample annotations are included.
Questions are also included to accompany the poem "Guilt".
