PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This close reading lesson plan is an excerpt from chapter 1 of Sarah, Plain and Tall. It is a close reading of the letter that Sarah wrote Papa in response to his advertisement for a wife. It is one of 3 close reading lessons to be used throughout this book. There are two posted so far. It is assumed that your students will be reading the entire book from chapter 1 to the end, but that you will just stop at the excerpts used in the close reading lessons to do a close read. Each of the 3 lessons is detailed for the 1st reading (students read to discover what the text says explicitly and make logical inferences, summarizing the key ideas and details), 2nd reading (students read while answering text dependent questions that lead them to deeper meaning and focus on author's word choices), and 3rd reading (rereading portions to clarify confusions). The excerpt has been typed out and includes an embedded glossary and a column for annotations. Text dependent questions are written along the side so students can refer quickly to the glossary and questions while reading. A writing prompt is given that synthesizes the information learned through the text-dependent questions.
