Classroom Considerations

  • The 22-page packet is the 10th in a series of 24 resources designed as intervention materials for the special education classroom; however, many of the activities are appropriate for all learners
  • The first nine lessons in the series use Tony Johnston's Any Small Goodness: A Novel of the Barrio, to introduce the routines and procedures practiced throughout. The exemplar text for the remaining lessons is Francesco D'Adamo's Iqbal



  • The packet includes a scripted plan, a vocabulary list for Chapter I, a prediction exercise, and templates for the student log and questioning activity

  • The plan assumes that class members are familiar with the routines and procedures developed in the first nine lessons
