Rereading Portions of the Iroquois Constitution and Eagle Song: "Somebody In Wanted But So"

This Rereading Portions of the Iroquois Constitution and Eagle Song: "Somebody In Wanted But So" lesson plan also includes:

A new close reading approach is introduced as learners continue with the novel Eagle Song in the twelfth instructional activity of this unit. This reading comprehension strategy focuses on identifying the character, setting, motivation, problem, and resolution in a text. The teacher first exposes the class to this strategy in a guided practice rereading of the Iroquois Constitution, originally covered in the previous unit. Using a graphic organizer, the class identifies the the specific elements of the writing in order to better understand its meaning. Students then work independently, rereading specific sections of Eagle Song as they practice using this new technique. Though the instructional activity is specifically designed for this novel, the reading strategy it teaches can be applied to any text.
