This Zip file contains everything you'll need to teach a Paired Passages / Close Reading Lesson using a narrative and a poem about fishing. The boys in my class absolutely love the choice of texts, and my girls end up loving the activity as well. I have my students work with a partner and/or small groups throughout the activity.
You will receive a 16 slide SMART file lesson and 10 pages of handouts/worksheets including the narrative text and the poem. EVERYTHING YOU'LL NEED.
Please take a look at all my other lessons and ideas at my "Arrrsome in Fifth" store. Thank you!
