In this lesson, students are on the fourth read aloud of the text, Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. The focus of the lesson is a series of text-dependent questions that call attention to the exceptional figurative language and vocabulary in the book. Students participate in paired and whole class discussion. This lesson is a strong example of Core Action 2, especially examining language the author uses.
