Lesson: 1: Analyzing Sequence using Graphic Organizers
Students will be able to analyze the sequence of events in fiction using textual evidence in a graphic organizer.
(I) will explain that we can use different types of graphic organizers to plot the sequence of events in a story. I will introduce and explain the two graphic organizers (provided) that we will use to analyze the sequence of events from a passage. For example: Each graphic organizer gives us some of the events in the text and we have to decide what comes after and before these events. In the first graphic organizer, the first two events are given. We have to identify what happens after Jose got dressed in his uniform but before Jose runs around the bases three times. I will read “Jose’s Baseball Routine” and model using the graphic organizer to identify the two missing events in sequence.
(We) will reread “Jose’s Baseball Routine” and work together to determine which events fit in the missing steps on the second graphic organizer. We will confirm our answers with evidence from the text.
(You) will read “Sarah’s Perfect Day” (passage provided) and use the graphic organizers to analyze the sequence of events in the story. You will base your answers on evidence from the text. (Independent Practice is provided.)
