Product Description
Dear Fellow Teacher,

Teach the eighth chapter of Esperanza Rising with this awesome anticipation guide created by me, teacher Chris Maynard.

This lesson focuses on the following concepts/skills: Aha! Moments (also known as light bulb moments), and finding supporting text evidence.

This anticipation guide purposes the lesson for the teacher and students with a helpful introduction, and an insightful breakdown of what students will be working on, how authors develop these concepts, and why good readers need to recognize this concept or skill.

This anticipation guide also works on summarizing the chapter via the SWBST summarizing strategy and includes an independent writing prompt.

Great for literature circles, guided reading, student discussions and whole-class debates, this anticipation guide will take your novel study of Esperanza Rising to a whole new level.

I have taught Esperanza Rising for three years now, and I can guarantee that this anticipation guide was developed with extreme care, thought and attention to detail.

Additionally, all of my anticipation guides are designed with Common Core ELA standards in mind.

Thanks for considering my product and being a teacher.
