This lesson uses the trade book Teammates by Peter Golenbock. It is written as a formal lesson plan in TC format, but can be modified or changed according to your preferences. The story itself is engaging, and promotes a lot of discussion among students. The aim of the lesson is to have students identify character traits while reading a non-fiction narrative, and to support that thinking with text details. It is a 2 session lesson, with a final writing response at the end, which I included examples of. It is ideal for an observation, or just if you need a plan and don't feel like writing one.
