Curriculum, Unit


Because the CCSS promote the importance of all students studying the arts, this section highlights places where ELA/Literacy instruction can be enhanced by connecting a genre or particular text, or a theme of a unit, to works of art, music, or film. For example, students can study self-portraiture when they encounter memoirs. Students might compare a novel, story, or play to its film or musical rendition. Where a particular period of literature or the literature of a particular region or country is addressed, works of art from that period or country may also be examined. In each case, connections are made to the standards in the CCSS themselves. Membership is required to access this site.

Reviewer Comments:

This is an excellent resource and just needs one little correction to receive an overall Exemplary rating.There is a typographic error in the title of Kindergarten Unit 5. The "d" is missing from the word "World" in the title (The Great Big Worl).Once this typographical error is corrected, this resource should get an Exemplary rating for Technical Completeness and Content Accuracy.
