Common Core has brought a shift in the way that we teach students to read texts. Close reading focuses on multiple readings, classroom discussion, text dependent questions, and citing textual evidence. This lesson plan includes all elements in one comprehensive, research-based lesson plan for the picture book Four Feet, Two Sandals by Karen Lynn Williams and Khadra Mohammed. This lesson plan and text are especially timely for teaching students about refugees.
