Your students will use close reading comprehension techniques, create a book as an analysis of the text (vocabulary, cause and effect, and key details), and write a summary of the text (RL.4.1-4.4).

  • Segment 1: students will analyze and make judgments about photographs of an unknown location.
  • Segment 2: students will produce a book which includes: cause and effect, vocabulary, and key details.
  • Segment 3: students will analyze a second text source to continue their creation of a book which includes: cause and effect, vocabulary, and key details.
