Close Reading and Gathering Evidence from Frightful’s Mountain and “Welcome Back”

Where did the falcons go? Scholars read the article Welcome Back which describes the disappearance of falcons due to the use of pesticides. During a second read, learners annotate the text by marking unfamiliar words and facts about falcons. They then work in triads to write a sentence to summarize each paragraph and discuss the text's relationship to Frightful's Mountain
