Read a passage and apply decoding, vocabulary, and during reading strategies
GRADE-LEVEL EXPECTATIONS ADDRESSED
R1C Apply decoding strategies to “problem-solve” unknown words when reading
RIE Develop vocabulary through text, using roots and affixes, context clues, glossary and dictionary
R1G Utilize strategies to self-question and correct, infer, visualize, predict and check using cueing systems (meaning, structure, visual)
§ Suggested Sources of Literature
o Pencil or pen
§ Handouts provided
o Decoding, Vocabulary and During Reading graphic organizer
o Freedom and the Spirit of 1776
§ Words to know
o graphic organizer
o decoding strategies
Complete a graphic organizer applying decoding strategies to problem-solve unknown words, develop vocabulary, and utilize during reading strategies. Scoring guide provided.
Begin this lesson with the question, “How do we use our freedom daily?” Students use details and examples from the texts read during this unit to add depth to the discussion including information gained while investigating the following questions:
§ What is the meaning of freedom?
§ What words do you think of when you hear the word “freedom”?
§ How important is freedom to you and your family?
1. Review decoding strategies, vocabulary, and during reading strategies by placing students in three groups to discuss skills previously learned in Lessons One, Two and Three.
2. Group one reviews decoding chart (notes) with other students, group two reviews vocabulary chart (notes), and group three reviews during reading strategies chart(s) (notes).
Each group will exercise their freedom of choice by deciding how they will present to the whole class a review of the lesson. Students will need time to plan presentations. (Presentation ideas: mobile, poster, collage, storyboard, cartoon, mind map, puppets, skit, pantomime, charades, story, poems, crossword puzzle, advertisement, song, sign language, brochure, etc.)
3. Each group presents lesson reviews.
4. Students independently read a passage (i.e., The Spirit of 1776 handout) or continue reading a novel on the topic of “freedom” and complete a graphic organizer applying decoding, vocabulary, and during reading strategies.
