Flawed Dogs: Informational Text
Lesson 1 of 4
Objective: SWBAT: build their background knowledge of dogs by listening to an informational text.
On the ReadingAtoZ.com site, there are many options for RTI students. For this lesson, I had students listen to the informational text to build student's background knowledge about dogs before reading the text, Flawed Dogs
Here is the informational text I shared with my students:
When we were finished listening to the text, we worked to compare and contrast what we already knew about breeds of dogs using a Venn Diagram.For example, we know that the Chinese Crested and the Dachshund are similar because of the hair.
It is great for students who are struggling to read to think about what they know about a topic and then build that knowledge further before engaging in reading a novel.
