Inferencing with a Shocking Beginning

Unit 5: Spooky Fall Fiction: Graveyard Book
Lesson 2 of 2

Objective: SWBAT use figurative language and inferencing to draw out the details of what the author is trying to tell us in the first few pages of the Graveyard Book.

Big Idea: To captivate your class and keep them on the edge of their seat, it is important to hook them from the start. This lesson uses the opening pages of the Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, to begin fine tuning their thinking and is perfect for inferencing.
