Reading about the Deaf Perspective: Dad and Me in the Morning Guided Reading Lesson Plan

 

Summary:

This lesson revolves around the book Dad and Me and the Morning by Patricia Lakin. The book tells the short story of a boy and his dad getting up early to see the sunrise. The book is unique because the boy in the story is deaf and the book shows the different ways he and his dad communicate. It is a great example of how the disabled perspective can be brought to a story that most children can relate with. In this lesson the teacher will read the book page by page and stop on each page to have students figure out all the different ways the boy and his Dad are communicating. The students will compete to see who can find the most ways. Everything you need to teach this lesson, including the book, can be found in the lesson plan by following the link below.
