Description

Overview:
These introductory plans will springboard students into the inspirational text, Dolphin Tale: The Junior Novel. This modified text, and a full length feature movie, was inspired by the true story of Winter, an injured bottlenose dolphin, and her recovery. Selected as an anchor text for this unit, Dolphin Tale: The Junior Novel provides many opportunities for third graders to engage in deep comprehension with a motivating and relevant text.  The modified text, was created using more simplistic language while keeping the main idea and characters intact. Students will recount events and identify the many and varied types of relationships presented in the story. Later in this unit, students will read a modified version of, Winter’s Tail, the informative account of Winter’s rescue and her rehabilitation. This set of lessons is intended to span between 6-10 instructional periods and will also set the stage for specific learning structures and routines.  Students will use response strategies to identify relationships among characters and animals.  Through reading and discussion, students will cite key details and evidence that support the main idea of portions of the text read. Contained in this plan are day-by-day lessons.
