Fall Fiction and Non-Fiction fun is a lesson modeled after the Comprehension Instructional Sequence (CIS). CIS is a format designed to align with the new Common Core State Standards. It teaches students how to interact with text in a way that develops their critical thinking skills. The activities that go along with the text are built around an essential question that students need to answer.
It is geared towards first and second grade. Kindergarten teachers can use it as a whole class activity. It may also be appropriate for third grade at the beginning of the year, or for third graders who struggle to read on grade level.
