This anticipation guide is a pre-reading activity for the OUTSIDE magazine article titled “Trapped” by Aron Ralston, September 01, 2004. It can also be used to accompany the movie "127 Hours".
The activity uses the engagement strategy of "clock partners" to encourage student discussion. The presentation includes teacher notes and tips to assist teachers with the implementation of the "clock partners" strategies and the discussion topics.
The anticipation guide and "clock partners" strategy will work well for students of all reading levels, but is especially helpful to engage struggling readers.
