I would assume the first thing you have to do is find a reading that will be appropriate for the group you are working with. Consider age, current reading levels, do you have any ESL kids or others that are going to have particular difficulties, etc.
Once you've picked out an appropriate level, you also need to decide on the length of the piece that you will use. This is obviously determined by some of the same factors as well as by how much time you have and whether you are reading it out loud to them, reading it with them, or if they are reading it on their own.
Then you can start planning things like whether you will use visual aids, how you will work to help the students get at the story behind the words, as they are not just reading for fluency here.
But to plan more specifically, one would need those other factors outlined in order to build a specific and effective lesson.
This topic would probably be better suited to the question/answer forum. It requires a lengthy discussion as well as multiple steps with many details. There's really not a discussion question. You simply want the answers. Try posting inthe question/answer forum and see if you get some good response. Also try checking out enotes lesson plans section.
