This unit will give students the skills and strategies needed to read fiction books well. Students will learn to read carefully to study and notice things about the main characters in their books, growing ideas about them from their actions, words, relationships and changes. Students will also learn how to share and expand their thinking through conversation with their partner. The essential skills of thinking while reading, using synthesis and inference to grow evidence-based theories, and determining themes within texts will help students traverse the rest of their reading year, even when the unit is officially over.
