literacy

In Reading Workshop, In this unit, students will begin by closely reading high interest informational and literary texts, learning to organize the information that they are collecting to teach others what they have learned so far. Next, they will form research teams on sub-topics of interests related to Westward Expansion. Last, Students will build theories and read critically, asking themselves; how can I build theories from studying multiple perspectives on a topic? How can I start to see how different authors approach the same topic differently, swaying their readers to think in particular ways?

In Writing Workshop, The Lens of History unit is designed to support students’ writing of informational texts within a content area study, in this case a social studies unit on Westward Expansion. This unit is aligned to the CCSS expectations .
