Get ready to engage your students in a unit that will truly make "Dreams Come True!" In the first segment of my Disney Unit, students use their close reading, synthesis, and research writing skills to gain a great understanding of the Disney empire. They study Walt Disney himself via a biography study, gather information about the history of Disneyland and Disney World, create a travel brochure for their chosen park, and present speeches to the class that synthesize their findings.
Additionally, this unit focuses on primary source material, including videos of Walt Disney himself describing his goals for Disney World.
Be prepared to fully engage your students in a unit that covers many academic standards, involves multimedia components, encourages 21st Century learning skills, and allows students to get a taste of the Disney magic from wherever they are!
