               A songwriter is a storyteller who communicates through words and music. Ozzie is certainly not
                        in transforming a private                         into some unforgettable lyrics.                   classic
     songs were similarly                              . One that comes to                         is “The Sound of                       ,”
     written by Paul Simon,                            performed by the duo                        & Garfunkel. Proving that good
     music              timeless, this beautiful and                    song – which was written                     than 40 years
     ago –              one of Ozzie’s all-time                                  . As he says, “                     grabs onto your
     emotions                       doesn’t let go.”
               Every                        approaches his craft differently.                      doesn’t stick to any
     particular formula. Sometimes he                          out with the lyrics,                other times with the               .
     He likes to try                different chord progressions on                      guitar and sing along              them. The
     idea is            find a good melody                     match the rhythm of                 song.
               Some ideas pan                          quickly, while others can                   months, or even years
     come to life. “                My Own” began with                  chorus, and the rest                the song just flowed
     of Ozzie, probably because                        all the emotion surrounding                 . On the other hand,
     talks about a song                     been struggling with for                     than a year, which                 still a work
     in                 .
               “It’s a story, but                      feel like I’ve only               part of the story.                 the song
     won’t be                               until I have more                    experience. Then I can write about                       .”
               As for Isaac, his                       as a songwriter has               blossomed. He’s been writing
     for years, but it took time until he was comfortable showing his work to others. According to Brandi, “Isaac was
     always kinda freaked out about having us use his lyrics because he’s such a perfectionist.”

         I now knew where Mike was. I ran past two                       who were questioning a                     witness. I
stepped over                 pile of broken glass.                       right hand pushed the                      open, and I
passed                       . When I looked down,                       saw a face that                     like my own.
“                   my God! Mike!” I                   , hovering over my brother’s                          . He’d been shot.
         Mike                still on the floor,               conscious. “C’mon Mike,”                      squeezed his
hand, feeling                         in return. “Let’s go,              , fight! Don’t leave me.                   , Mike!”
         An instant later,                     were pushing me out               the way and placing                onto a
stretcher.                   stuck him with needles                      gave him oxygen. Before                    knew it,

need you. Fight,                      !” His eyes moved around                   circles like he was                for some-
thing. Finally, they                  mine. “I need you.”

                    next morning we were                       to be leaving for UNY. We’d stayed out of trouble right
until the last moments.

     PART FOUR: Graphic Organizers

     Graphic Organizers help us to do just what their name implies: organize information using a chart,
     graph, or picture. In other words, they help us to sort out details so we can figure out what’s important.

     Directions: Read the excerpt below from the Scobre Press book The Kid from Courage. After read-
     ing, choose a Graphic Organizer below and use it as a model to outline your thoughts about the text
     on a separate sheet of paper.


           He (Johnny) came from a broken home. He used to cut classes on a regular basis. He
           appeared in Juvenile Court twice before his thirteenth birthday. Yet, as sixteen-year-old
           tennis prodigy Johnny Matthews capped off an undefeated summer by easily marching
           through the Southern California Sectionals last week, people were whispering that he just
           might be the future of American tennis.

           This likeable youngster stands six feet two inches tall, relying on every inch to unleash his
           large cannonball serve. Coupled with fluid, elegant ground strokes, it adds up to a total
           package. And don’t let his dynamic personality and impish grin fool you – this kid is fero-
           cious on the court, demolishing hapless opponents with merciless precision.

                  Schedule for Critical Conversations
Scobre suggests the following schedule for critical conversations. Teachers should use these conversa-
tions to monitor student progress, administer feedback, assist students with their goals, and track student
progress on their Class Record Sheet and Teacher Tracker – Reading Progress – Individual Students.

Note: Teachers may initiate discussions with students using the following prompts with the entire class,
small groups, or individual students. The Student Folder, which contains the Reading Response Log
/ Book Tracker, the Student Tracker – Independent Reading, and the Goal Sheet, would provide
useful information for these conversations.

                                  Prediction Guide Directions
     Directions for the Teacher:


     1. Choose a selection of pages from a particular Scobre Press title to use as a focus.

     2. Before class meets, fill in the “STATEMENT” column of the Prediction Guide with your own predic-
        tions about the focus text.

     3. When class meets, distribute copies of the Prediction Guide that you’ve filled in, and read aloud to
        the students one or two pages leading up to the focus text.

     4. Ask students to think about what might happen next in the text. Students will assess your state-
        ments on the Prediction Guide by writing checks or minuses in the “ME” column to show whether
        or not they believe the statements will prove true.

     5. When students finish assessing the prediction statements, read aloud or assign the focus text.

     6. As students read/listen to the text, they will compare the prediction statements to the text and put
        a check or minus in the “AUTHOR” column of the Prediction Guide to show whether the prediction
        statements are true.

     7. Students then change the incorrect prediction statements to make them agree with the text/author.




     SAMPLE STATEMENTS:

        ME          AUTHOR                               STATEMENT                               PAGE
       (√ or –)        (√ or –)

                                     John quits school and ignores the advice of
                                     his teammates.

                                     John scores the winning goal.

                                     Courage is an attribute John demonstrates.

Directions: Read each statement and place a check in the “ME” column if you think it will turn out to be
true in the text to follow, and a minus if you do not think it will turn out to be true. Then, read the text as
directed and place a check or a minus in the “AUTHOR” column if the statement agrees or disagrees
with what is in the book. Compare your predictions with what the author wrote.

Taking It Further: Change all of the statements you marked with a minus in the “AUTHOR” column so
that they agree with the book, and write down the page number where you found the information.
