This lesson is great for providing students with an opportunity to read independently at their own level, as students are given a variety of texts to read. The Depth of Knowledge required for the tasks in the lesson is deep, as it requires students to transform information rather than just repeat it. The lesson is written using specific standards from the national Common Core. While the standards here are grade 10 specific in writing, they are easily transferable to grades 9, 11, and 12.
This lesson was written to be used specifically with a novel, but could easily be used for any informational text reading.
