Close Reading of Thank You, Mr. Falker: Identifying the Superpowers of Reading

This Close Reading of Thank You, Mr. Falker: Identifying the Superpowers of Reading lesson plan also includes:

Third graders read excepts from the story, Thank You, Mr. Falker in order to gain practice in understanding an unfamiliar story by focusing on the details. They use a worksheet, embedded in the plan, which directs them to certain passages in the book. They go back and re-read them, then complete two worksheets for homework. The first one has them describe the character, setting, motivation, problem, and resolution of the story. The second has them write an essay in which they compose a paragraph that describes what the instructional activity of the story is - in their minds. An interesting, and thought-provoking language arts instructional activity!
