Product Description
Close Reading
Point of View
Compare and Contrast

I wrote this lesson because I wanted an interesting topic that would catch my students' attention. I also was frustrated trying to find articles that showed a clear point of view about a similar topic. I wanted non fiction articles that would be easy to teach with; but would challenge my students at the same time. Point of view, compare and contrast, and supporting answers with evidence is all over the common core standards and PARCC testing. I created this lesson as a fun way to teach and learn these skills.

This lesson is focused around two non fiction articles about Bigfoot. The goal is to close read for the author's point of view, find supporting details (text evidence), compare and contrast the author's point of view, and finally write an essay.

Included are close reading steps, four pages of directions with explanations, two non fiction articles, graphic organizers, assignment options, and a rubric.

This lesson is designed to be taught as an I do, we do, you do model of teaching and learning. It can be modified to fit your needs and your students' needs. You could use it as a whole class lesson, mini-lesson, shared reading, partner reading, independent work, etc. I included directions for how I used it in my classroom last year. I taught fifth grade last year; but this could easily work in sixth grade or even fourth grade. I plan on using it with my sixth graders next year.

Enjoy! :)
