Product Description
This is a comprehensive non-fiction research unit that takes you from choosing a topic to writing the bibliography. The entire unit is based on the Common Core Standards.

This packet includes the following items:

A Common Core Unit Overview:standards, targets, student objectives, rationale, formative assessments, student activities, materials needed, and modifications and accommodations for special education students and English language learners.

A Performance Assessment Task: task purpose, materials essential questions, task procedures, and a wide range suggested people for all walks of life to research.

A research planner: benchmark due date for each part of the research projects

Teacher lesson plans: How to take notes, write an outline, an introduction, body, and conclusion as well as a bibliography. They include Common Core Standards, student objectives, teacher prep and materials needed.

Focus lessons on each of the above topics.

Exemplars for each topic and student practice activities.

Research projects are a daunting task to for students and equally daunting to teach. Therefore, I created this unit to scaffold the process into smaller doable steps.

Last year I implemented this unit and student writing was the best I have seen in 26 years of teaching. I made some edits to improve the unit. It is one of my best units. Hope you will find it as valuable as I have.
