what it means. Ask the students what promise means to them. Have the students write two or
three sentences on what they predict is going to happen in the book.

During Reading: During reading, the students will be provided with sticky notes to do text
coding. With text coding, the students will put a “?” (for a question about the text), *(important
information), and C(for a connection to themselves in the text).

Follow-up Activities:

   1. Go over with the students, the text coding. Ask the students to pick one text coding note
      to share with a partner. Have the students to think/pair/share with each other.

      paper, tell the students to write about an experience where they were in DW’s shoes or
