15 Mini Lessons

Each lesson includes a short script, sample anchor chart, reading prompt and common-core standards. The lessons help students develop a deep understanding of persuasive texts.

Two formats:

  • Lesson Cards--On the front you will find a short lesson script, a reading prompt and the common-core standards addressed. On the back you will find a sample anchor chart along with suggested read alouds. The cards can be printed front to back and easily stored in a whole-group or small-group area.
  • Extended Lesson Plan--This is a full-size lesson plan that includes everything found on the lesson card as well as ideas for guided practice.

15 Sample Anchor Charts

Each lesson is accompanied by a sample anchor chart. Use this to provide students with more information, and to apply knowledge learned in the mini lesson to your shared readings. (The anchor charts are not full size, I use these to give me ideas for making my own anchor charts on chart paper).

Independent Reading Focus

This is a short prompt that asks students to apply what they have learned during the mini lesson to their own independent reading. Students record their response on their reading bookmark (included) and then share with the class after independent reading time. A powerpoint is included (in both .ppt and .ppx formats) which you can use to display the daily focus onto a smart board or other projector.

Guided Practice

The guided practice sheets provides information from the lesson, then asks students to apply the information to their own reading. Perfect for independent reading, guided reading and interactive notebooks. Guided practice covers:

  • Evaluating Facts, Opinion, & Beliefs
  • Determining the Author's Values and Position
  • Summarizing the Author's Argument
  • Defining the Persuasive Genre
  • Persuasive Techniques
  • Author's Purpose
  • Evaluating Author Bias
  • Analyzing & Evaluating a Persuasive Text
  • Comparing and Contrasting Procedural & Persuasive Texts
  • Also includes reading bookmarks for note taking

Quick Guide to Genre Study

This product includes a quick guide to genre study. The guide explains how genre can be used to logically frame your reading curriculum over the course of a year. For a more in-depth look at genre study, check out this extensive guide.

9 Read Alouds

Each read aloud sheet contains more information than can be covered in a single shared reading. Simply find the book in the library, then highlight your instructional goals and the corresponding discussion questions--it's that easy! View the preview (above) to see a list of individual book titles.

Each read aloud sheet contains the following:

  • Book Information: title, author, reading level, duration
  • Instructional Goals: These align naturally with the book's format, themes and content. Each discussion question is labeled with a corresponding common core standard.
  • Connections to Larger Units of Study: This section outlines how the focus of the read aloud connects to larger reading principles.
  • Book Introduction: A short introduction to the book.
  • "During Reading" Discussion Questions
  • Modeling/Think Aloud
  • "After Reading" Discussion Questions
  • Mini Lesson Ideas: A short list of mini lessons that would pair well with the read aloud.

★★★Read Alouds correspond to EXISTING PICTURE BOOKS that you can find in your school library★★★
