I'm sorry, but I really don't know of the book. One state did contact me about using parts of the unit, perhaps this is what they called it. I just wrote the unit for study because I felt that too many years had gone by without the recognition these heroes deserved. If the book helps, I would certainly use it. I always feel that we need to adapt everything to our own style of teaching and the children who are our students. I hope it helps you.

I thought that I had a preview on the site, but I'll try to tell you a bit about it. I taught history for many years and decided to take all that I had learned and put it into an ABC type foremat. So for Explorers, Colonists, etc. I wrote and activity for each letter of the alphabet, A-Z. It was helpful to me each year as I taught history to see the various activities that would suit my students for each different year. It was helpful to me, and I hope it would be helpful to you as well. Best regards.

Overview: Note-taking, or paraphrasing, is defined as taking the words of another and putting those words or ideas into your own words. Paraphrasing for comprehension is writing those ideas to learn material presented. Using all the modes of communication - reading, writing, listening, and speaking – students better understand and learn the context of both the written and oral word. This unit will teach students to focus on main idea and details, find important concepts, and identify the author’s voice by learning to web, outline, and use graphic organizers to better comprehend and elaborate content.

Student Objectives:

· Students will learn to read for important concepts
· Students will learn to write important concepts in abbreviated forms
· Students will learn to paraphrase text in writing
· Students will be able to distinguish main idea from details
· Student will be able to read and understand non-fictional materials
· Students will use brainstorming, webbing, and outlining to organize information read or hear
· Students will learn to take notes for later reference
· Students will use notes for discussion and elaboration
· Students will transfer learned strategies when reading across the curriculum

Hope this helps. I have found this an effective way to teach students because you can use any text; I prefer History or Social Studies, but any non-fiction will work. It is progressive so the times listed are only suggested since every group of students is different, as you know. I noticed that you have some of my same background with this level, so perhaps it isn't new to you, but I have used it with great success.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Like most of you reading this profile, I am a lover of children, a care-giver, and a dedicated teacher. I spent 32 years in the classroom before retiring several years ago. During my tenure as a teacher in the elementary grades, I was on a myriad of writing committees, including those that developed the benchmarks for the district. As a literacy coach, I was able to present at both local and state levels at both the Reading and Math conferences. I co-authored a book, Beyond Book Buddies, by Corwin Press. I have also written for the internet and been a critical reader for both Scott Foresman and Corwin Press. As a teacher I wrote and received many grants at both the state and local level. During these last years, I have been writing units of study for my daughter who teaches in Texas. She has been able to use and adapt them for her Special Ed students of high school age, a task for all teachers using units and lessons of study written by others. The method of teaching should be the decision of the teacher and should meet the needs of the students he/she teaches.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style was eclectic, but I did everything I could to involve students in their learning. I believed in being a facilitator rather than a lecturer. I hated dittos and used textbooks as a reference tool. Because of my product oriented philosophy, I started writing my own units of study during my first years of teaching, not finding them in the references that I had. I developed studies that went across the curriculum and involved differentiated instruction. I have used Easy Books as introduction and patterned units after them. My preference is to write through social studies and bring in all of the literature standards that I are applicable. I have team taught, taught only one or two subjects and all the students in the grade level, and looped. My favorite through the years has been to teach all of the subjects to all of my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Again, like most of you, my honors and rewards have come in my classroom as I have seen the spark of understanding that comes with comprehension. I have been proudest of the hugs that I have shared with my students, and the tears that come with the end of the school year. That said, I have also been honored to be nominated for Teacher of the Year three times in two different districts and became a finalist one year. The rest of my honors are the same as most of yours. I have been recognized for writing my book, I have been asked to serve on committees, and I have written grants and given presentations. It still thrills me to hear from some of my students of past years, several of whom I have corresponded with even into adulthood.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

During my teaching tenure, I have earned a BS in Ed, a MEd, and about 70+ hours in various methods and subjects. I received my Bachelor's from the University of Texas in Austin and my Masters from the University of Missouri in St. Louis, MO. The other hours have come through colleges and universities in Missouri and Colorado.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

By writing for the internet, I hope to share my experiences and my knowledge with teachers. Like many of you, I was constantly told to just "get together with my teammates" to create units of study. The only problem was that I could never find the time, and neither could they! In presenting my units, I hope to give teachers ideas, based on standards and research, that they can take into their own classrooms and use as a starting point for their own lessons, ones that fit their teaching styles and their students' needs.
