What do you think about what you just learned? (1-2 sentences on the inside cover of your blue booklet)
As we read we are going to work to determine how the author structures the text. Remember that text structure could be cause/effect, compare/contrast, sequential order etc… As we read we are also going to look at how the structure contributes to the meaning or development of the text. We are going to work on understanding new words or phrases as we find them using context clues or word parts to help us determine their meaning. We know we are looking at how parts of the text contribute to the text as a whole so lets preview the text. Find the title, headings or sub headings, images, captions etc…
I am going to read the section titled “We’re doing the impossible” How does the author structure the text in this section? Lets look at the next section “Making dreams a reality” Lets do the same steps we did with the previous section- Predict how do you think they are making dreams a reality? Record your prediction next to the heading in your booklet. I am going to read the section aloud while you read along in your booklet. As we read you are working to answer the question: How does the author structure the text in this section?
How does the author structure this section? What details from the text support your answer?
Now you are going to read the section titled “A new meaning to my life” Lets do the same steps we did with the previous section- Predict why do you think this could create new meaning in my life? Record your prediction next to the heading in your booklet. You need to read the section. As you read you are working to answer the question: How does the author structure the text in this section? You will need to have specific examples from the text to support your answer.
Please answer these questions and turn them in before you leave class today.
On the inside front cover of your booklet write a brief 1-2 sentence summary of what the article “A Way out of the Landfill” was about.
Yesterday we identified the text structure and answered some questions on how the parts of the article supported the central idea. Today as you read you are going to look for some specific cause and effect relationships. Complete the cause and effect chart on pg. 4 in your booklet.
After reading the article a second time, read the quote at the top of the page: “Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.” Steve Maraboli. How does the orchestra help the children of Caterua become stronger and more resilient? Answer questions 2-5 on page 4.
