An engaging lesson designed to support students with the skill of drawing conclusions. Beginning with an introduction to the skill, the students are then led to connections to prior knowledge, and finally to the application of the skill throughout the reading. The lesson is scaffolded to support all learners with visuals and sentence frames. It is designed to accompany the Open Court Reading series, but page numbers can be adapted to other versions. Keep the students on task, and you instruction focused, meaningful, and well-paced!
