Lesson Objective

Students will be able to use signal words (as a result, until, therefore, hence, consequently, for this reason) that show cause-and-effect relationships in expository texts.

Lesson Plan

Direct Teaching
(I)            will review signal words that can help readers identify cause-and-effect relationships (if, then, because, since, so). I will post a chart of cause-and-effect relationships and identify the new signal words in each example. (Example Chart is provided.) I will explain that signal words are often used to make the relationship between cause-and-effect more explicit. I will begin reading the passage, “Dear Mr. President”and will highlight the first two cause-and-effect examples. (Passage is provided.) I will model rewriting these examples using signal words. (Example Chart is provided.)
 
Guided Practice
(We)            will continue to read and identify the cause-and-effect relationships in “Dear Mr. President” and rewrite the relationships using signal words. (Example Chart is provided.)
 
Independent Practice
(You)            will read the passage, “Frogs at Risk,” identify cause-and-effects relationships in the passage, and rewrite them using signal words. (Independent Practice passage and worksheet are provided.)
