4 Lesson Plans to Teach Deep Reading

By on January 12, 2016

Happy New Year! In 2016, we will continue to provide four awesome lessons for grades 4-12 each month. This month, we have developed lessons around Investigative Reading. I love this reading skill! It is collaborative and fun and pushing students to think critically about the texts they are reading. Try one of our lessons below or you can teach the skill right from the Skill Library! This is inquiry-based learning at its best!

Although each lesson has an identified grade level, LiteracyTA Members can add the lesson to their lesson plans and change the grade level, subject area, state literacy standards and skills. Each lesson follows LiteracyTA’s 5-Steps to Confidence Reading process and highlights a skill in an effort to support teachers as they implement more literacy standards into their curriculum. Enjoy!

Just in case you missed them, here are our lesson sets from the beginning of the school year.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
