Continue work on the two-piece poem that compares two characters from Esperanza Rising. Give class members a few minutes to finish their drafts.

Pupils will learn and use the praise-question-suggest protocol to provide specific feedback, and then revise. Refer to lesson plan 13 of this series for setup and instructions for the two-voice poem. The lesson plan also scales back on some of the scaffolding. Less time is spent discussing the text than in previous lessons; however, the reduction in scaffolding feels natural and will be a nice break for learners.
