If you are using Notice and Note, this lesson will go great with the novel Wonder, by R.J. Palacio , which is also part of the 5th grade MAISA units. Students will start the lesson by listening to songs to determine the theme of the song. Then there will be slides to review theme, conflict and making inferences. Students will also review the notice and note signposts in this lesson. The goal is for students to come up with a signpost that goes along with their Anchor Text (Wonder), or with their own independent reading book. They will then use textual evidence (rubric provided) to support their sign post. Lastly, they will need to explain how that signpost helped them understand either the theme, conflict or how it helped to make an inference in the story.
