Passage "Many Diasters of the 21st Century" First, Second, and Third close read PPT along with notes with blanks for students that have difficulty coping. Vocabulary PPT with notes along with a context clue worksheet. This is good for students at all different levels.
- Excerpt "Perfect Storm" Central Idea, Evidence Chart, Close reading and Vocabulary PPT (with notes)
- Extended read "Submerged City" Close readings, and first read notes.
- Performance task- Cause and effect ozganizer, outline, peer editing sheet, student checklist, and rubric.
** The performance task is set up for "21st Century" and "Submerged City" but can easy be changed to fit "21st Century" and "The Perfect Storm". I used Submerged City with my class because the Perfect Storm was too difficult for them to understand.
