An Object of Obsession is an information Report about the legendary Hope Diamond and the curse it supposedly dealt to the many owners. Students love to read about mysteries and supposed curses.
The reading activity includes the text, visual vocabulary clarifying card, guided reading questioning card for teachers to illicit student response using a variety of reading strategies and a graphic organiser for students to summarise the text.
This reading activity can also be utilised as a modelled, guided or independent student reading activity, but I suggest guided in literacy rotations.
I would love your feedback!
