Unit 1 Lesson 2
September 11th 2013

Reading Closely
We will read closely which can be very challenging.

As I read I want you to pay special attention to key words and I also want you to listen closely to how the author describes the new character.
Do Now:
Step 1: Write down the learning targets in your notebook.

Step 2: What are some of your goals today for having a positive and productive class discussion. Take 3 minutes to write down 3 goals in your notebook.

Learning Targets:
1. I can effectively participate in discussion with my classmates.
2. I can identify central ideas of chapter 1.

New Information
The notes you take today will be the evidence that you met the learning target “I can determine the central ideas of Chapter 1 of A Long Walk to Water.

Take one minute to make a t-chart in your notes.

Violent and difficult content
Some of the material we read will be violent and graphic. Violent material is difficult to read because it can stir up bad images in our minds.

Sometimes if I read material this is too violent, I will put the book down for a minute and think about something else. Other times I will meditate for a couple of minutes.
