Help your students comprehend informational text more deeply with this mini-unit! In this four-lesson unit, students will practice determining the central idea, writing summaries, providing and citing text evidence, and analyzing text structure and ideas. All texts are centered around the common topic of Burrowing Owls.
Included in this plan are a unit overview, four lesson plans, links to all articles and texts, and handouts to go with the lessons. Students will work in small groups, with partners, and individually as they work through each lesson.
