Experience the Los Angeles Riots through the eyes of a child in Even Bunting's poignant story Smoky Night. Use this text as you teach vocabulary in context, using comprehension questions to help scholars make connections to outside concepts. As you read, learners listen for five words: amazed, hazy, rioting, shelter, and staggering. They raise a hand when they hear one and observe context clues. There is a set of questions for each word, and you can easily extend this strategy to cover more words. Check out the graphic organizers as possible homework.
