Close Reading Strategy using S.O.A.P.S. The Watsons go to Birmingham Ch. 5 By: Chau Nguyen February 22 2016

slide 2:

Lesson Objective: The learner will be able to synthesize and articulate point of view tone mood and purpose of Chapter 5 page 68 and 71 “Nazi Parachutes Attack America and Get Shot Down over the Flint River by Captain Byron Watson and His Flamethrower of Death” from the novel The Watsons go to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis via a strategy called S.O.A.P.S and also through small group discussion guided by different insinuating questions.

slide 3:

Materials: 1. Book -The Watsons go to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis 2. Poster paper and black and blue markers to record group’ s ideas 3. S.O.A.P.S handout During Reading Handout A and B 4. Exit tickets

slide 4:

Set group expectations: 1. Model audience behavior to students using SLANT 2. Remind students how to think ink pair share 3. Each student is responsible for being ready to share their thoughts to the group

slide 5:

Procedure: 1. Review with the class the Close Critical Reading Skills named S.O.A.P.S. on the chart paper and review the acronym 2. Model how to determine S.O.A.P.S with the handout of chapter 5 page 68. Ask learners “What is the subject of this piece the occasion audience purpose and speaker” Give time for kids to respond and record on the transparency.

slide 6:

Procedure continued: 3. After guided practice and modeling pass out copies of chapter 5 page 71. Have the learners read their page twice. Every child should also have a “During Reading Handout” and complete the handout together in their group. Next pass out nonchalantly the “After Reading Handout.” One group will have questions that given a slight bent toward the chapter being about corporal punishment while the other group will have questions that seem to illustrate that the poem is about the love between a son and his mother. 4. Give one chart to each group. One person from each group will then record the group’s answers onto the chart paper. Once the groups have finished their transparency a few representatives from each group will come up and share their ideas with the class.

Procedure continued: 4 continued. Both groups will have a different section from the chapter but two completely different ideas of the tone point of view possible audience and purpose. 5. Allow for the groups to argue their point using examples from the text. . Lastly share with learners that close reading is not about answering questions but it is about careful dissection of the given text. Proving one’s answer via the text is critical.

Text from page 68: Momma’s voice got strange hissing like a snake.“Joetta go out to the kitchen and bring me a book of matches.”“But Mommy…” Joey saidm starting to get all sobby.“Joetta do what I told you.”“Mommy I can’t…” The tears really started coming and Joey was squeezing my arm.”“Joetta go get those matches”“Please Mommy he won’t do it again will you Byron Promise her promise Mommy you won’t do it again”“Kenneth.” She turned to me then. “Go get some matches.” This is what I was afraid of. If I didn’t go get the matches I was going to be in worse trouble then I already was with Momma and I did get the matches I knew Byron would kill me as soon as he got back from the hospital.“Momma I---” “Move young man”“Momma wait a minute I can’t move Joey’s got me by the arm and if I move---”Momma pointed her finger at Byron and said “Don’t you move a muscle.” We all could tell Momma was super mad ‘cause she started talking in that real Southern-style accent.

slide 9:

Text from page 71:She wiped Joey’s stupid tears away with the paper towel and rockered her back and forth a couple of times going “Shhh honey shhh.”When Joey finally stopped crying and blew her nose Momma said “Sweetheart I’m so proud of you I know you’re trying to protect your brother and that’s a good thing I know you’re trying to protect your brother and that’s a good thing I know you don’t want to see him get hurt right.Joey sniffed and said “No Mommy.”“But honey some of the time Momma has to do things she doesn’t want to do. Now you really don’t think I want to hurt Byron do you”Joey had to think about this the matches and the first aid stuff and the crazy look Momma had in her eyes made it seem like hurting Byron was exactly what Momma wanted to do.After Joey didn’t say anything Momma had to answer the question herself. “No dear Momma doesn’t want to hurt Byron but I don’t want you going to school smelling like smoke either and I don’t want to see you or Kenneth or Daddy or Blackie or Tiger or Flipper or Flapper get burned up either. And if that boy “--- Momma’s voice got strange again and we all looked over at Byron who was still being held on the couch by his own hands --”if that boys sets this house on fire with his nonsense I don’t know what I’m gonna do.” Momma’s real voice was coming back.
