This reading comprehension lesson focuses on analyzing proposition-and-support patterns in text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students read the text and identify the proposition. Then, they determine words or phrases that support the author's proposition and those that do not support it. Finally, they explain how the author's proposition was supported. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review modeled on current adaptive testing methods.
