This unit can be used alone or as an extension of another Abraham Lincoln unit. I do this with my reading group after completing another unit about Abraham Lincoln that we do in our Read Well 2 curriculum. The students enjoy noticing some of the information from the previous text and comparing/contrasting with new information from this book. Reading, writing, and listening & speaking Common Core Standards are covered and are listed. I planned this using the Common Core Standards to guide me.
*Detailed daily lessons-13 days
*Links for blackline masters: KWL chart, Venn Diagram
*Links for 2 additional articles on Abraham Lincoln (2 different levels)
*Blackline masters: note taking sheet, report writing page
*Question guide for daily reading. Each day’s questions include at least one question from each level of Bloom’s Taxonomy. You can ask the questions or print out the guides for students to use in partner teams.
*Photos of work samples
*Homework: blackline & question ideas for nightly written response on their own reading
