------FOCUS Acronym Outline:

F- First Read: RI.10- Students complete a series of highlighting and labeling the text and read independently.

O- Open thinking: RI.1- Students will organize their thoughts by completing a text box. The text box uses text-dependent questions where students answer using the text and citing evidence from the text.

C- Closer Look: During their second read, students listen while their teacher reads the text and annotate using a system preferred by the teacher.

U- Unwrap the text: RI.3- Students analyze the text to complete an activity specifically designed to analyze text features and/or structure of the text.

S- Show: A third and final look at the text allows students multiple times with the content. Students choose 1 of 4 task cards (or teacher can choose 1 in advance) to show what they learned.
