Flawed Dogs Research
Lesson 2 of 4
Objective: SWBAT: students in a Response to Intervention reading class will build their background knowledge of topics in our book, "Flawed Dogs", by researching on their own.
This is kind of a selfish lesson, because I need to be able to do a full DRA with my Response to Intervention students and my students needed to be able to do something without my assistance. At the same time, I really needed them to strengthen their comprehension of our book, Flawed Dogs, and I thought the best way to do this was to build their background knowledge by doing some basic book and internet research.
I checked out some dog books from the library for my students so that not everyone needed to be on the computer at the same time, kind of like stations. As they are researching, I want them to use the Flawed Dogs research guide to hold their thinking.
I chose this text for my intervention group to read because it is funny and engaging. I know that building students background knowledge will help to make the text more accessible.
Before the end of the lesson, we will share our findings and grow that schema together.
