Grapes of Wrath Inro lesson, showing the meaning of using coding as a reading strategy. This lesson would be at the start of a unit on the Grapes of Wrath, hopefully coinciding with a lesson in a history class about the Great Depression era. In this class, there are 7 females (counting Dr. unt!, so that could be a potential problem, since I am male. I don"t foresee it being one though. #ssessed: 'eadin( Standards or Literature )*%$: $tandard %. &ite strong and thorough te'tual e(idence to support analysis of what the te't says e'plicitly as well as inferences drawn from the te't, including determining where the te't lea(es matters uncertain. $tandard ).
