PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This three-day lesson plan follows the gradual-release model and includes bellwork ideas, reading tasks, and answer keys. It is a follow-up to my lessons on visualization. Link-Reading Strategies: Introducing Visualization

First, you introduce and model the reading strategy, using three video clips ("Sherlock Holmes" and "Million Dollar Baby") and one anchor text (Mark Shulman's "Scrawl"). Second, students practice the strategy by collaborating in small groups with a second anchor text (Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's "Beautiful Creatures"). Students also practice their listening and collaboration skills through the Novel Ideas strategy.

Each fictional text includes directions for locating evidence or "clues" to support inferences, higher-level questions, and review of visualization. Students need to have been introduced to visualization before using this lesson plan.

This lesson not only helps your students practice the inference strategy and reinforces visualization, but it is also a great way to promote high-interest novels.

It follows my "Introducing Visualization" lesson and comes before my "Introducing Questioning" and "Introducing Schema" lessons.
