The Newbery Honor Book My Brother Sam Is Dead joins the Scholastic Gold line, which features award-winning and beloved novels. Includes exclusive bonus. James and Christopher Collier. • Brothers who grew up in the Depression era and faced hard times. • James took on odd jobs to support himself and changed.
But that's all about to change with a quick series of violent events. Here goes… Violent Event 1: All of a sudden, a bunch of soldiers charge into Betts' house.
They drag Captain Betts, Mr. Rogers, and Jerry Sanford onto the road.
Uh oh, this can't be good. Tim thinks he's figured out what happened: "the officers had gone up to Mr. Heron's […] to find out who the Rebel leaders were" These three Patriot guys now become captives of the British army.
Violent Event 2: When the British see a rebel messenger riding into town, they shoot him on the spot. And then they don't even look at his body when they go past him.
Now that's cold. Tim gets involved when he's sent for the doctor.
He starts hauling his rear end as fast as he can. Good thing Tim is a smarty pants: he runs through the pastures towards the doctor's house so that he can avoid the British troops who are taking the road. Violent Event 3: While he's running, Tim hears shooting and stops to look over at the British troops. Sure enough, Tim sees the British firing at Captain Starr's home, where a bunch of rebels are firing back.
This is done by having the students follow along silently while the teacher begins reading aloud. The teacher models prosody, inflection, and punctuation. The teacher then asks the class to join in with the reading after a few sentences while the teacher continues to read along with the students, still serving as the model for the class.
This technique will support struggling readers as well as English language learners ELL. The teacher hands out Summary Organizer: Lt.
Francis Smith Document. Students will look at the selections from the document and determine which words or phrases are the most important in each selection. They will copy those important words into the box on the right. Students can brainstorm with partners or small groups but must complete their own organizer for this assignment.
Class discussion: Groups or individual students will share their summaries and compare with other groups.
