Reading Strategies: Introducing Visualization
This two-day lesson plan follows the gradual-release model and includes bellwork ideas, reading tasks, and answer keys.

First, you introduce and model the reading strategy, using two anchor texts (Jack Gantos' "Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key" and Kelly Easton's "To be Mona"). Second, students practice the strategy by collaborating with partners using the appointment clock strategy and in small groups with a third anchor text (Jennifer Brown's "Hate List").

Each fictional text includes directions for applying sensory details and higher-level questions.

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

It also connects to my lessons on inference, questioning, and schema:
