READING LITERATURE ANCHOR 3

Anchor 3 is the beefiest of the anchor standards in literature. Within anchor 3 learners are working o deeply analyze characters, the setting and events of the story. Not only are they trying to understand characters but also analyze how a character's motivations, traits and feelings are contributing to the events in the story. Third graders will focus solely on analyzing a character, but as learners begin to progress into fourth grade, students are also learning to identify plot as the events of the text. When students have the capability to analyze a text their comprehension deepens. 

  • RL.3.3 Describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events

  • RL.4.3 Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character's thoughts, words, or actions).

  • RL.5.3 Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact).

  • RL.6.3 Describe how a particular story's or drama's plot unfolds in a series of episodes as well as how the characters respond or change as the plot moves toward a resolution.

In this session you will:

  • Analyze and understand the anchor standard for your grade level

  • Articulate the vertical alignment of the anchor standard across 4th-6th grade

  • Develop daily learning targets for your grade level

  • Identify a variety of texts that can be used for explicit instruction and independent practice

  • Identify activities for instruction and independent practice

  • Identify a variety of formats for assessment
