Are you looking to increase student achievement while at the same time make your job easier and more effective? If so, then this lesson, a win-win, is for you! Reading comprehension comes, in part, to our ability to understand a text's structure. This lesson provides direct and guided instruction into the text structure of cause and effect. This instruction is then followed up by opportunities to apply the learning throughout the reading of "Urban Roosts: Where Birds Nest in the City." Visuals and sentence frames are provided throughout the lesson to allow ALL learners to access the curriculum. So, what's the wait? Order today and make your year great! (This lesson is paginated to the Open Court 2000 reading series but can be easily adjusted to fit your needs. It is also part of many more lessons designed to go with this series, available upon request.) Be sure to download the free preview to get a better idea of the look and feel of the presentation. Thank you!
