Combine cause and effect instruction and work with biographies to get a strong and powerful lesson that covers much of what our students need to become wide reading, strategic and engaged readers.
This lesson includes a complete mini lesson on cause and effect along with practice tasks to support the learning.
Teachers will be able to continue to model and practice cause and effect relationships with the text "Wilma Unlimited" using this plan. Students will see through cause and effect work how Wilma Rudolph overcame incredible obstacles to become the first American woman to earn three gold medals in the Olympics.
An inspiring story and clear instruction on cause and effect will result in deep thinking and understanding with an opportunity to summarize the story at the end of the lesson.
