Charting the Text: Undercover Parent

Goal: Close analysis of Undercover Parent using the Charting the Text strategy for the first time.

Charting the Text: 
Charting a text helps us understand the text better and shows us the structure of the argument.
Well educated readers can separate what the author is saying from what the author is doing.
This will not be easy at first. The struggle is worth it.
  1. Open the Undercover Parent Article.                Click the link here:  Undercover Parent Article 
  2. I will pass out a charting organizer and you can work with a partner (someone in your row) on each section. You need to talk it out. 
  3. For each section determine what the author is saying first then what he is doing. (Do not move on to the next chunk until you have finished saying and doing for the one before it.)
  4. Since you are new at this I filled in some of the boxes for you to help you figure it out. Read them.
