Our Text with Purpose and Understanding lesson plan teaches students how to use the Read, Recite, and Write (R2W) method to determine the meaning of a piece of writing. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to use the R2W method to analyze a paragraph and answer questions about it. Students are also asked to use the R2W method on their own to determine the main topic of various excerpts.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to determine the purpose and meaning of text and explain what they have read.
