Lesson Plan, Unit


In this unit for 6th graders, students will bridge their understanding between reading for information and reading solely for entertainment. Students will develop an understanding of the connection between discovery and reading as well as understanding that they are discoverers in their own right. Students will construct a fact book that includes information from various sources on the areas we have covered as well as constructing an analysis and explanation of their decisions. The assessments will provide students the framework to adjust perceptions and utilization of resources to match the purpose of their actions. In the end, students will understand that reading is a vital key to learning, even through fiction, and that discoveries are made by various people every day. Students will develop a dedication for reading for a purpose and form a lasting connection to discoveries in the world that have affected their lives.Repository CitationSanchez, Vanessa, "Discovering Our World" (2008).
