It features the short story "The Wrong Lunch Line," by Nicholasa Mohr and a current and very relevant non-fiction article adapted from The New York Times.

Skills addressed: connect, predict, summarize, synthesize, infer, compare and contrast, root words, tone and mood, close reading, text structures, setting, point of view, fact and opinion.
During the lesson students will: discuss in small and large group, work with a partner to read and investigate, collaborate, and confirm both closed and open ended questions, and respond in writing to a prompt that requires understanding, identification of evidence, and synthesis of two similarly-themed texts.
