3 Books and Lessons for Teaching Synthesizing

Hi There!

Looking for ideas on how to teach students how to think critically and synthesize?  Check out the three mini lesson statements and watch the video to get more ideas on how to teach synthesizing with three specific books. 

Here is a chart with three mini lesson statements and examples of how to frame your whole class discussion.  Fill out your charts with these organizers as you discuss each book with the class!

Roxaboxen is an excellent story that leads to students thinking deeply about what it means to create an imaginary town.  In the story the kids in the neighborhood turn an area of land into a small town, complete with roads and houses!

The Little House is a powerful story about how a well-built house went from living in the country so becoming surrounded by a large city.  The images capture the transition slowly on each page as the reader feels the emotions of the house as it struggles to accept its new surroundings.  It's a great books to teach kids to think deeply about the world around them!

The Book of Bad Ideas is a hilarious book of really bad ideas.  It's a great mentor text to help kids determine which detail is the most important, or in this case, which bad idea is the worst!
