Students will be able to read with prosody.
Tell students that today we will be looking at the comprehension and prosody clues that punctuation gives us in a text.
Define prosody as the rhythm and pattern of sounds in language. Write the definition on the board. Explain that when we read with prosody, it helps us better understand what is happening and what characters are feeling.
Intermediate: Have students rephrase what you will be studying today. Explain that rephrasing means to use your own words.
