Unit Description

In this unit students will practice comprehension skills while enhancing their knowledge and understanding of plot, character and author's purpose. Reading comprehension doesn't just involve fluency. It also involves deconstructing a story to understand the character's motivation, the plot and the reason why an author chooses to user a certain point of view or setting. This unit will use short stories to explore these themes.
