Lesson: 2: Analyzing Sequence with Exception Questions
Students will be able to use textual evidence to answer exception questions about the sequence of events in fiction.
(I) will model how to eliminate answers that don’t make sense and how to use the strategy of going back to the text to determine the sequence of events in a story. I will use the story “Moving Day” (provided in the unit) to answer two exception questions (All of these are in sequence except . . .) about the sequence of the story. (Exception questions are provided.) I will model reading each possible answer, returning to the text and marking where each event happens in the story, and determining if that could be the correct answer.
(We) will work together to analyze the sequence and answer the exception questions on the graphic organizer. We will base our answers on evidence from the text. (Graphic organizer is provided.)
(You) will read “Game Day” (provided) to eliminate answers and use relevant information from the text to answer exception questions about the sequence of the story. You will also explain (orally or in writing) how you use these strategies to determine your answers. (Independent Practice is provided.)
