Casper, Donna; And Others
Part of a curriculum series for academically gifted elementary students in the area of reading, the five lesson plan guides are intended to provide teachers with suggested activities stressing high levels of reading comprehension as well as encouraging teachers to use their own ideas. Each guide focuses on one of the following major objectives: (1) anticipating the meanings of words through the context, supplying deleted words, and anticipating events or concepts; (2) determining the implied main idea or theme and hypothesizing the nature of the characters; (3) utilizing the main points, the details, and the interrelationship among the details to draw a conclusion or solve a problem; (4) identifying the causes presented, predicting the effects, and establishing a relationship; and (5) identifying similarities and differences to make a comparison and contrast relationship. The major portion of each guide consists of a chart showing specific objectives; the lesson, procedures, and activities; evauation suggestions; program materials; related materials; and optional, additional, or more elaborate skills and literary information. Supplementary worksheets and other materials are also provided. (DB)
