The lesson begins with a review of reading strategies students have been using already in their work and the collaboration goal of noticing the thinking of others and integrating it into our own thinking.
Students independently explore the text to introduce the book to themselves. After a short discussion of the table of contents, the students read and the introduction and Chapter 1, marking Very Important Points with sticky notes. During the discussion, students are encouraged to integrate the information they read within the text, supporting them to make judgements about important parts of a text and synthesize information within and across the text.
