Discovering Characters Resources: 6

This is the second reading unit of the year, and continues the work of the first unit. Students will begin exploring characters more intensely. Specifically, students will learn to track characters over time, and to support their thoughts about characters with evidence from the text. The unit is designed with five core lessons that will be repeated with at least two novels for about three weeks. The lessons will be scaffolded to have a lot of teacher modeling, and gradually releasing responsibility to the students. By the end of the three weeks, students should be able to accomplish each aim with very little teacher support.

Nonfiction reading (part 1) Resources: 90

This is the third unit of the school year. I've found that most of my readers don't know how to tackle reading a nonfiction text. This unit introduces nonfiction reading by teaching students the basic text features they will encounter while reading nonfiction. The unit also teaches students some of the basic ways that students can tackle reading nonfiction. For example, in the lesson, read the page in many directions, students learn to read all of the information presented on a page in a systematic way. Embedded in the unit, is nonfiction independent reading. During this unit, my students switch from reading fiction for their IR to reading nonfiction. After this unit, they may continue to read either independently.
