Using Quotes to Explain Relationships: The Invention of the Electric Motor

Read it and read it again. Scholars do multiple reads of the text The Electric Motor. During the first pass, they read to discover the gist of the text. In the second, pupils use quotes from the article to explain the use of the electric motor and complete a cause-and-effect note catcher. Learners then discuss using context clues and answer text-dependent questions.
