The goals of the lesson are geared towards having the students use a critical lens to think more deeply about a text. They will predict, infer, and draw conclusions about the reading passage. I used this lesson as an observation for my class and it went extremely well. The Common Core standards I've included are for fourth grade. This lesson can easily be used for grades 3-6. Also, the graphic organizer I used for the lesson is included. I used passages from readworks.org for this lesson. The website is free to join so I use it often in my classroom. Enjoy!
