Blueprint for Reading
In the Blueprint for Reading section, the student is introduced to each selection in two ways. The first, Into the Selection, encourages the student to think analytically about the selection they are about to read:
- What is the author’s purpose?
- What drives the action?
- Who are the characters?
The second, Eyes On, links the literary component already introduced in the Lesson in Literature to the selection. The student is asked to think about how the literary component is expressed in the story. In addition, strategies for implementing the selection’s focus skill are suggested.
