The activities in this lesson will engage students in thinking about how a person’s position, needs, and concerns affect their point of view on an issue. Students will apply this to characters in "The Memory String" by Eve Bunting.
How can you *see* what your students are thinking while they read? Try reading response letters in your class. Students will practice formatting letters and learn to discuss their thinking about literature in writing.
Use this lesson to help your ELs summarize information from a text and use context clues to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words. This lesson can be a stand-alone lesson or used as support to the Day 4 section of the Star Unit lesson.
