Product Description
In this final unit, students continue to explore the question: “How do authors learn and share their knowledge on a topic?” as they share their growing knowledge of the culture of a country with the author of the Magic Tree House books, Mary Pope Osborne. Students also expand their expertise as writers by crafting a research-based letter. The specific literacy focus of this unit is on writing a research-based letter to Ms. Osborne using text-based facts, as well as learning to revise. Each student will create a letter to Ms. Osborne to inform her about aspects of culture that have remained from the past to the present in several countries where her books are set. This writing serves as a synthesis of the research students did in Unit 2. Students receive scaffolded writing support from adults and peers by crafting a letter to Ms. Osborne about the country of Japan, the shared research experience in Unit 1. In the mid-unit assessment, students craft an on-demand first draft of their research-based letter to Ms. Osborne based on the country they researched with small groups in Unit 2. Students then practice revising and editing their Japan letters based on support and critique from peers and the teacher. In the on-demand end of unit assessment, they revise and edit their letter about the specific country they researched in their expert groups. After finishing the letter during the assessment, students publish the letter and celebrate through an Author’s Chair celebration.
