I love this lesson. It has great gradual release of responsibility and is developmentally appropriate for this age level. I used an adaptation of this lesson with 4 and 5th grades during Media Literacy class.

This was an absolutely fantastic plan. I am a 5th grade teacher in a virtual school and only had one day for this topic, but I will be revisiting these techniques for the rest of the year. I am excited about teaching this lesson as the first 5th grade ELA class in the New Year 2014!
