This is a PowerPoint Unit for the New York State ELA Common Core Curriculum for 5th grade. This Lesson #1 has been adapted from the Engage NY website based on the 5th Grade Module 1 Unit 2. New York State has created these modules - the only thing missing were the PowerPoint lessons to help with the presentation aspect. This will make learning all about Esperanza Rising way more engaging for your students!
This PowerPoint presentation is extremely thorough and will make teaching this lesson a breeze. This is completely "Teaching Lesson 1 for Dummies!" I couldn't have made it any easier for people to adjust to this new curriculum. I am really excited about the feedback I've received from everyone. You really won't be disappointed. I am hoping you will enjoy this lesson and then consider buying other lessons or units I have created.
