3 Books and Lessons to Teach Analyzing

Hi There!


Looking for ideas on how to teach students how to think deeply and analyze as they read books?  Check out the three mini lesson statements and watch the video to get more ideas on how to teach analyzing 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!










The Lotus Seed is the story of how a young girl kept a tiny lotus seed her entire life to remember her childhood and homeland.  When her grandson plants the seed she is devastated.  But, as the seed blossoms she's reminded of her early years.



The Old Woman Who Named Things is about an old lady who had outlived everyone she loved.  So, to keep from being lonely, she named her things.  Her chair had a name.  Her car had a name.  One day she finds a dog and is scared to name it because she doesn't want to outlive him too.  The story of friendship is wonderful.



The Best Beekeeper of Lalibela: A Tale from Africa proves that a little girl can be just as good at caring from beehives as the big strong men in the village.  The story is a tale from Africa with great cultural lessons and many themes to analyze.
