This lesson is part of a larger unit on "Coming of Age" novels. In this unit, students focus on the strategies of asking questions and making inferences, and they also gain familiarity with characterization analysis and analysis of theme. In today's lesson, students have the opportunity to make inferences about a text with the use of a graphic organizer. Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, customizable student notes that include the shared passages from Avi's What Do Fish Have to Do with Anything? and Thoeodore Taylor's The Cay, an overhead transparency of the graphic organizer for use with the lesson, and exit slips that will help you to determine which students may require additional support in mastering the week's focus objective.
