  2. AGENDA • 1. Opening • A. Engaging the Reader (10 minutes) • 2. Work Time • A. Text-Dependent Questions: “Sloth Canopy Researcher: Bryson Voirin” Remaining Interview Questions and Answers (15 minutes) • B. Rereading: What Else Can We Learn from Bryson Voirin’s Research about the Rainforest? (15 minutes) • C. Determining Words in Context (10 minutes) • 3.

  3. Learning target: “I can actively listen to my partner while discussing our ideas.” 1. What does listening actively mean? 2. Now, please share your journal from Homework with your partner and also be an active listener.

  4. You will now share your understanding of last night’s homework. Glass = I was able to identify and write details that helped me understand the text better. Bugs = “I was able to identify and write details , but I’m not sure yet how it helps me understand the text better.” Mud = “I’m not sure about identifying and writing details or how they help me understand the text better.” What are you? Bugs. Glass! Mud?

  5. “I can determine the meaning of new words from context in an interview with scientist Bryson Voirin.” Review learning targets: “I can determine the main idea of an interview with scientist Bryson Voirin,” and What does determinemean? (Remember yesterday we determined the gist.) Determine means to figure out.

  6. A. Text-Dependent Questions: “Sloth Canopy Researcher: Bryson Voirin” Remaining Interview Questions and Answers (15 minutes) “Sloth Canopy Researcher: Bryson Voirin” Interview • As you take out your copy of the interview, please take a moment to skim your gists from yesterday (questions 1-3) and observe the structure of this informational text again. Now, please read silently as I read the rest of the interview to you.

  7. Interview with Sloth Canopy Researcher: Bryson Voirin 1. What is your Job description? I am a biologist studying the behavior and ecology of two- and three-toed sloths. Right now I am studying biology and ecology at New College of Florida, and working in the rainforests of Panama with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. 2. What do you study now? Basically I am trying to understand why sloths move so slowly, as well as a few other weird things about them. We use radio-collars to track sloth movements in the Algae that (exists) inside the hairs of sloths, something that normally does not occur in any other mammals. I am looking to see if maybe there is some benefit for the sloth to have algae. 3. What is the best thing about your job? The best part of my job is getting to climb trees in the rainforest. Trees in the tropics are some of the biggest in the world, reaching over 150’ tall. The view from the tops of the trees is amazing. A lot of times when I am up there troupes of monkeys come climbing by, sometimes stopping to look at me and wonder what I am doing up there with them. 4. What is the worst part about your job? The worst thing, or hardest thing, is actually finding the sloths to start with. Sloths are very good at hiding. They usually live at the tops of trees, and can have greenish fur. We have to walk through the forest all day with our heads tilted up, looking for dark spots with hair. Sometimes it can take us weeks to find a single sloth. 5. What inspired you to first study science? Ever since I was little, I was always fascinated with National Geographic magazine. I used to imagine I was one of the scientists in each issue, exploring unknown lands or catching wild animals. I always knew that was what I wanted to do. 6. What do you do in a typical day? On a typical day working in Panama, I go out into the forest looking for sloths. I usually hike with someone else, and we use binoculars to look for the animals. When we find a sloth, I use my tree climbing gear to go up and catch it. Even though sloths are pretty slow animals, it can take hours to catch one once I am in the trees. They can move about as fast as you can walk fast, so in a tree 150’ tall, it can be hard to catch them. 7. What advice would you give to someone interested in becoming a biologist? I would tell anyone interested in working in biology to go outside and explore things. Walk through parks and natural lands. The things you can find in your own backyard can be really cool. If you start exploring young, it will stay with you forever.

  8. Text Dependent Questions • Work with your partner first to discuss and then to write answers to the four text-dependent questions. • You will have about 8-10 minutes to complete the four questions.

  9. Text-Dependent Questions:Group Discussion -ish means “somewhat” or “like.” (Fourth Interview Question and Answer) What does greenish mean? (Although, before that…what does the suffix “-ish” mean?) Greenish means like the color green Why would having “greenish fur” make sloths difficult to find? What in the text makes you think so? The text says that sloths live in the tops of trees, which have green leaves, so something greenish in color would blend in and be hard to see.

  10. Text-Dependent Questions:Group Discussion 2. (Fifth Interview Question and Answer) When the interviewer asks Bryson Voirin, “What inspired you to first study science?” Bryson Voirinsays he was, “… always fascinated with National Geographic magazine.” What does the word fascinated mean in that sentence? What in the text makes you think so? Fascinated means that he was really interested in it. He says that he would imagine he was one of the scientists exploring unknown lands or catching wild animals; after he says he was fascinated by the magazine, and how scientists explored and caught animals, he says, “I always knew that’s what I wanted to do.”

  11. Text-Dependent Questions:Group Discussion 3. (Sixth Interview Question and Answer) What equipment, or tools, does Bryson Voirin say he uses for his research? How does each of these tools help him to study sloths? He uses binoculars and (tree climbing) gear; binoculars are for looking at animals and tree climbing gear is used to catch a sloth up in a tree.

  12. Text-Dependent Questions:Group Discussion 4. Bryson Voirin tells the reader “…to go outside and explore things,” if they are interested in biology. What feeling about being a biologist does the word explore create for someone reading this interview? How would the reader feel about being a biologist if he used the word see instead? Makes being a biologist sound like an adventure, seeing new places and things, interesting ; it doesn’t sound as exciting to be a biologist, because the word “see” creates the feeling of standing still and looking, not really doing anything besides looking.

  13. Text-Dependent Questions Please choose the person wearing green (the most or most greenish) and have them bring up your text-dependent questions. Please make sure you have your name on them.

  14. B. Rereading: What Else Can We Learn from Bryson Voirin’sResearch about the Rainforest? (15 minutes) What Else Can We Learn fromBryson Voirin’s Research? In a moment, you and your partner are going to reread The entire interview with Bryson Voirin. As you do so, look for new things that you can learn about the rainforest.

  15. “I can read the interview with scientist Bryson Voirinwith fluency.” What does reading with fluency look and sound like? When would you want to have good fluency?

  16. “I can read the interview with scientist Bryson Voirinwith fluency.” With your partner, you will determine your roles: one person will be the interviewer, the other will be Bryson Voirin. You will have about 5 minutes to read out loud. Please practice good fluency. When you finish this new read of the interview please add your new learning to the L column of your KWL chart in your journal.

  17. C. Determining Words in Context (10 min) “Why do you think scientists choose such specific words when communicating about their research?” “They want to make their readers feel like they are researching with them.” “They want readers to get excited about their research.” Are these words usually scientific words, or academic words? These words are usually scientific words because they apply directly to what the scientists are studying or working on.

  18. Now, consider some other words, or academic words, from the text, looking back at the reading to try to figure out the meaning of each word by using context clues.

  19. Try this in question #5, “What does the word issue mean in this context?” “one magazine”; “a magazine published on a single topic/date,” etc.

  20. Try this in question #5 find the word unknown. “What does the prefix un- mean?” The prefix “un-” means not. What does the word root known mean? Known means knowledge you have or something believed to be true. Then put them together for the definition of unknown. What is unknown? Not knowing

  21. Can you find these words?typical, move about, advice What paragraph are they in? Typical = 6; move about = 6; advice = 7 “What does typical mean?” normal; usual; everyday What does move about mean? go different places; not stand still; walk, etc. What does advice mean? guidance on how to do something; how to accomplish something, etc. Please add these new academic words to your glossaries in their journals. For now, just add the words and definitions.

  22. A. Debrief: What Have We Learned Now about the Rainforest? (10 minutes) Learning Lineup Protocol To check our learning targets, where do you fit? • EXPERT - completely understand and can apply understanding • NOVICE- getting the idea, (if you’re somewhere in between) • BEGINNER - still not quite understanding the target

  23. Learning Lineup Protocol When you see each target, move where you belong: • EXPERT= front of the room (completely understand and can apply understanding) • BEGINNER= back of the room (still not quite understanding the target) • NOVICE = somewhere in between (getting the idea)

  24. Learning Lineup Protocol 1. I can actively listen to my partner while discussing our ideas. • EXPERT= front of the room (completely understand and can apply understanding) • BEGINNER= back of the room (still not quite understanding the target) • NOVICE = somewhere in between (getting the idea)

  25. Learning Lineup Protocol 2. I can determine the main idea of an interview with scientist Bryson Voirin. • EXPERT= front of the room (completely understand and can apply understanding) • BEGINNER= back of the room (still not quite understanding the target) • NOVICE = somewhere in between (getting the idea)

  26. Learning Lineup Protocol 3. I can determine the meaning of new words from context in an interview with scientist Bryson Voirin. • EXPERT= front of the room (completely understand and can apply understanding) • BEGINNER= back of the room (still not quite understanding the target) • NOVICE = somewhere in between (getting the idea)

  27. Learning Lineup Protocol 4. I can read the interview with scientist Bryson Voirin with fluency. • EXPERT= front of the room (completely understand and can apply understanding) • BEGINNER= back of the room (still not quite understanding the target) • NOVICE = somewhere in between (getting the idea)

  28. Please return to your seat…and choose one thing to share from your KWL chart that you learned (L) about the rainforest from the interview with Bryson Voirin.

  29. With someone at home, read the interview again. Ask them to be the interviewer. You be Bryson Voirin. After you are done reading the interview, pretend to be Bryson Voirin and answer one more question: “What would you like to explore further in the rainforest? Why?” Write your answer to this question. Have the person who interviewed you sign your interview. Bring the signed interview and your written answer back to class with you. You get to be Bryson Voirin and answer one more question.
