ELL Strategies

Students reading at this level are likely to be quite fluent speakers of English although they may need more support with idioms, expressions, vocabulary, and multiple meaning words. This will affect their ability to draw conclusions and infer from the text. Encourage these students to use sticky notes or a notebook to jot questions they have while reading to be discussed/clarified at the guided reading table during the following session.

Other ELL strategies can be found at


and tailored to the individual needs of your students.

Essential Questions:
What aspects of today’s modern lifestyle do you take for granted?
How would your life be different if you had been born 300 years ago?

Before Reading


Tier 2 Vocabulary Words are high frequency words that are found across a variety of domains. At a minimum, provide student-friendly explanations that tell what a word means in everyday connected language. A wide range of vocabulary resources are available at http://t4.jordan.k12.ut.us/cbl/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=40&Itemid=35.









Activate/Build Prior Knowledge:

  • Discuss strategies for dealing with unknown, period-specific words in the text (see discussion at http://www.muskingum.edu/~cal/database/general/reading.html#GeneralApproach)

  • Read the material at the back of the book about the historical context of the novel

Comprehension Strategy:


During Reading

Attend to Comprehension Within, Beyond, & About the text.
Using appropriate Guided reading strategies, students will be reading at their own pace and teachers will be listening to students read, monitoring, giving feedback, taking anecdotal notes and running records.

After Reading

Attend to Comprehension Within, Beyond, & About the text.
Discussion questions, activities and information:

Use the literature circle questions in the back of the book (Scholastic edition) or the topics available at http://www.bookrags.com/Fever_1793.
