This packet was created using the Gradual Release of Responsibility Framework! The Framework allows for students to work where they're at...assessing them before you teach, teacher modeling, differentiated collaborative group practice that is scaffolded according to their prior knowledge,independent practice and finally, a post assessment.
It is aligned to the Common Core Standard 2.1:
CCSS RL 2.1: Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.
This lesson plan pack includes directions and prompts for mini-lessons and partner practice as well as ideas for collaborative activities. We have also included an integrated writing activity that corresponds to the reading standard.
*Note: This pack does not include the collaborative activity sheets- it is the slides for the mini-lessons and partner practice only. If you need the activity pack and pre/post assessments for this unit, you can find it here:

These lessons were designed for our high-performing second grade class but could be used for third grade due to the complexity of it.
