Lesson: 1: Visualizing a Setting
Students will be able to determine the setting using context clues and visualization.
(I) will model using clues from the main characters’ five senses to determine the setting of “Gloria’s Walk” (text provided in this unit). I will identify, discuss and chart (example provided) the evidence from the passage that helped me identify the setting. I will explain how thinking about the sense descriptions given by the main character and paying attention to clues in the text helped me identify the setting (where and when the story takes place).
(We) will work together to identify clues associated with the main character’s five senses and identify the implicit setting of “Rainy Day” (text provided in this unit). We will identify, discuss, and chart (example provided) the evidence from the passage related to the senses that helps us determine the setting.
(You) will use clues from the text to determine the setting on the “Figuring out the Setting” worksheet. (Independent Practice worksheet is provided.)
