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 use all of their reading strategies together as they code the text using the symbols they have learned thus far this year. Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, customizable student notes that include the shared passage from Gayle Forman's If I Stay, and an overhead transparency of the reading passage.
This resource is part of the Coming of Age Unit collection.
