Paul’s Route
Using your background knowledge of the American

reading in your reading journal.
First, predict what Paul’s duties will include
as an express rider.
Second, predict what some hardships Paul
may come across on his trip.
Third, make at least one prediction for the
end of the biography.
All your predictions must be supported with clear
explanations as to why you feel that way.
As you read the story, record the major events that occur
during Paul’s ride. Provide details about the events based on
the story. These recordings will become a timeline later.
As you read, if any of your earlier predictions prove to be
true, highlight them and write the page number on which
they were proved true. Add more predictions as you read
the story. Record new predictions in a different color pen.

Overall, this cyber lesson is intended for students to complete independently. Lower
ability readers would benefit from completing it in groups or with teacher guidance. This
cyber lesson could be completed as a center, in computer lab, or segments can be displayed
on a Smart Board for students to complete independently.
Before Reading: You may want the students to go through the map either with your
guidance or in groups, as some of syntax of Paul’s actual journal entries may be difficult
for students, especially lower readers, to comprehend.
During Reading: The movie can be viewed as a whole class to increase all students’
comprehension of the story. It also can serve as differentiation for lower readers to aid in
their comprehension of the story if you do not feel all students need it.
Beyond Reading: Lower readers would especially benefit from reading the leveled
books in a guided reading format, but you may want to use that method with all students.
Note: Deborah Sampson – below level, Bunker’s Cove – below level, Bernardo de
Gálvez – on level, Mercy Otis Warren – above level
Beyond Reading: The Liberty’s Kids movie would be great to watch as a whole class
and discuss. Then students could make their choice for which activity they will complete.
