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 Lesson 5, students will generate questions about the characters in their literature circle novels. Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, a print-ready overhead transparency of the shared reading passage (a selection from Dave Pelzer's A Child Called It), and customizable student notes.
