Lesson: 2: Implicit Cause-and-Effect (Fiction)
Students will be able to describe implicit effects when given a cause.
(I) will review some of the cause-and-effect statements we discussed during Lesson 1. I will discuss how these cause-and-effect relationships were easy to identify because they were in the same sentence and we used signal words to identify them. I will explain that many times cause-and-effect relationships in stories do not occur in the same sentence and are not associated with signal words. I will explain that in order to understand stories better, we must think about what is happening in the story and why. I will begin reading the first page of Two Ways to Count to Ten: A Liberian Folk Tale retold by Ruby Dee. I will identify the king being rich, powerful, and wise as a cause. I will model identifying the effect, “all the animals loved and respected their king” by thinking aloud about the “what” and the “why” in the story.
(We) will continue reading Two Ways to Count to Ten: A Liberian Folk Tale retold by Ruby Dee and identifying the implicit effects in cause-and-effect relationships. For example, on page 2, King Leopard says that whoever wins the contest will be King and King Leopard’s daughter will be Queen. An implicit effect of winning the contest is marrying the King’s daughter. We will stop after the chimpanzee fails to become the king.
(You) will listen as I finish reading Two Ways to Count to Ten: A Liberian Folk Tale retold by Ruby Dee. You will identify the implicit effects of the given causes. (Independent Practice worksheet is provided.)
