PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SOUNDER - A full Directed Reading and Thinking Activity guide

This Smart Board Notebook file breaks the book Sounder by William Armstrong into daily chunks. Each day, a different reading skill objective is addressed.

PLEASE NOTE: Unlike my other DRTA guides, this file is a bit thin. It is useful for teachers who like a guide with questions to encourage students to probe their reading as they read. But with only a few Notebook pages per chapter, the teacher may be expected to ask other questions that occur while reading.



The lessons are structured as follows:
- Review/engagement/objective
- Reading/thinking cycle through one chapter
[ Each reading/thinking cycle includes Active Reading questions (connect, evaluate, predict, infer, etc) as well as the expected page numbers for the next chunk of text to be read. Page numbers are based on the HarperCollins publication. ]
- Reading skill objective instruction/practice
- Word bank (vocabulary)
- Closure

Note that the lessons assume that the teacher will read aloud some portions of the book and that the students will read silently, in class, other portions of the book. There is NO HOMEWORK expected. (Though a teacher is obviously free to create companion pieces for this file.)

Depending on reading skills and speed, some "daily" lessons may take two days.


The zip file includes:
- Sounder.notebook (main file; Smart Notebook file)
- Sounder Notebook.pdf (PDF version of the main file)
- Sounder Font.txt (info about fonts used)

NOTE: The main file in this package is a SMART NOTEBOOK file. If you do not have that program, I have also included a PDF version of that file.



Enjoy!
