Students can read closely the exemplar text of Jim LaMarche’s The Raft. The packet includes numerous worksheets aligned to the Common Core Standards. The concepts presented also align to the DRA Reading Assessment for Level 28 and above.
Instruction will focus on:
Reflection and Character Changes Over Time
Determining Most Important Event
This comprehension unit can be done as a whole class read aloud or while students use their own copies of the book. My students found much success with this close read and adored the language and artwork in the book.
