Fourth graders continue reading and discussing Eagle Song in the thirteenth lesson of a literature unit. Starting with small group discussions about different aspects of Native American culture, readers analyze the beliefs held by characters in the story. The teacher then reads aloud the first two pages of chapter 4 as the class works together answering text-dependent questions, being sure to cite specific evidence to supports their ideas. Time for independent reading follows as learners use sticky notes to locate details addressing the remaining questions, before finally working in groups to discuss their answers. A lesson that continues to develop students' ability to provide evidence from a book when discussing their reading.
