Teacher Julia


This is an entire 3-week unit on Alaska that will teach your students how to navigate nonfiction texts and collect research. This unit is modeled as a Readers Workshop. If you have never used a Readers Workshop model before, this unit is perfect; with its scripted text and completed activity sheets, it walks you through the entire process!

Over 70 pages include:
- 15 mini-lessons structured with the Readers’ Workshop model
- CCSS Alignment Grades 3-5
- Suggested script throughout each lesson
- List of materials and Lesson Set-up
- Conferencing Tips
- Unit Overview to help you set up for the next 3 weeks
- Unit Agenda with space to write the date of each lesson to keep you organized!
- Student Tracking Sheet
- Student Activity Sheets
- Teacher Model Sheets that are already completed

*PLEASE NOTE: If you do not want to purchase or borrow from the library the books necessary to follow this unit exactly, I have another UNSCRIPTED version of this unit here: Readers' Workshop - Teaching Nonfiction in the Classroom UNIT
