The teacher lesson pages take you step by step through the following sections:

  • Use Picture Clues—how to work with the non-text clues provided in the illustrations, encouraging students to focus on the illustration and to use logic and deductive reasoning to support their hypotheses.
  • Use Text Clues—students form and revise hypotheses as they read and think about each new clue.
  • Confirm Solutions and Share Information—students share what they know about the subject under discussion.
  • Build Vocabulary and Concepts—this section presents various types of graphic organizers and guides the teacher to use “think-alouds” to help students organize, interpret, and understand information.
