Our school does a lot of readers workshop. We also have a large population of English Language learners and students with limited language from poverty. Sound like your school? This is a lesson for 5th grade. I wrote the content and language objective starting with the state standards. I gathered some ideas from the Jan Richardson book. After combinding SIOP strategies and Readers Workshop, I wrote this lesson. I use it in small groups and during mini lessons. This lesson idea can be used with almost any fictional book. You want to start with small books that can be read in a day or two to model and practice, then students can apply finding theme to their chapter books.
