Today's lesson was developed in response to my students' tendency to rush into reading-responses that requires careful, critical thinking. I noticed that students' responses were frequently off-topic or incomplete as a result of their inattentive analysis of the question itself. If your students are already careful planners, you may wish to adapt today's objective to fit your needs. In today's lesson, students identify the strategies they must use in their reading in order to respond appropriately to an open-ended question.
