Citing Evidence and Building Vocabulary: “The Exterminator”

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

It is an out-of-body experience. Scholars take a look at the sidebars outside the body of the text in The Exterminator. They discuss the purpose of this type of text feature and work to determine the gist. Learners write unfamiliar scientific terminology on sticky notes and use dictionaries to identify their meanings before discussing which words were also found in Frightful's Mountain.
