Description

This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, uses the narrative text "Granddaddy's Gift" by Margaree King Mitchell to help students improve their inferential comprehension, prediction, and discussion skills. Before reading, students answer discussion questions to help activate prior knowledge. During reading, students are presented with a story-specific statement and must argue both sides of the issue and provide reasons for their thinking in small discussion groups. Students are then asked to make predictions as to how the story will end. After reading, comparisons are made between the ending of the story and the students' predictions. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
