Unit 8: Readers Can Read about Science Topics to Become Experts
In this unit students learn how scientists build a base of knowledge on a topic, compare and contrast texts on the same topic, and learn by asking questions.
The lessons have easy daily scripts for the teacher to use during the reading workshop lesson. Each mini lesson includes a connection, teaching point, active engagement, link, mid-workshop teaching point, share time, recommended mentor text and the common core standard met.
This unit is to be taught in May and June. There are 16 easy to follow scripted lessons.
