Product Description
This is a mentor text lesson using the book Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan. The resources as intended to guide students through the process of making inferences to help them understand the text. Students will use the graphic organizers to outline text evidence and background knowledge (schema) before constructing the inference.

Rules of Summer, is a simple story outlining some interesting rules of summer learned by two boys. The deeper story is one that outlines the complexities of the boys' relationship. The illustrations are unique and essential to the understanding of the story. This text is a perfect choice to reinforce inferring with your students. The simplicity of the text encourages students to rely on the illustrations, as well as their own personal understandings to discover the protective, rival and supportive relationship of the boys, reveled throughout the text.

In addition to the student pages, you also have an answer key (using actual student generated answers – from my students) that helps to anticipate common student misconceptions. This lesson is best suited for collaborative group work, but could be completed independently if your students have a strong grasp on making inferences.
