PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this 30 lesson ELA unit, the focus is on reading and writing informational texts. Students will read high level, complex texts dealing with the challenges of being a student. Students will also write informational essays using text evidence from these complex texts. Some of the texts in these unit include: an article from the New York Times, a speech from President Obama and a podcast from NPR. Students will be taught common core aligned ways to analyze complex text as well as ways to use text based evidence to strengthen their own writing. This unit is common core aligned. It includes unit flow of lessons, lessons, handouts, supplemental material, writing material, exit slips and assessments. NOTE: This is a revised version of my product: ELA Unit: The Path to High School. The primary difference is the writing focus. This unit focuses on writing essays, and "The Path to High School" focuses on writing paragraphs. This version of the unit is a higher level unit.
