Product Description

It’s back to school, and you’ve decided to begin the year with Native American origin myths because they offer great opportunities to enhance your classroom management strategies. 
But you don’t have good resources to get started in that direction, and you don’t have time to make them. Worse, you know you need a major grade within a month, but you don’t have time to make an assessment. Worst of all, you know you could enhance your classroom management simply by offering a project with lots of options (everyone loves choice), but you don’t have time to make anything unique. Fret no more. The work is already done!
What’s Included:
• 5-6 day mini-unit (shorter if you skip the Summative Project).
• Teacher’s Guide with notes on preparing the lesson and helpful hints.
• Detailed lesson plan with pacing guide.
• 5 Handouts/Graphic Organizers (Very similar documents are used my FREE Origin

     • Write & perform an original origin song
     • Play School: Read an origin myth & teach the class
• Suggested differentiated essay topics to extend the unit.
• CCSS & New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) in Word
How to Use:
• The lesson is student-centered. Students learn through self-discovery rather than through traditional teacher-centered lecturing. Teacher facilitates/assists groups.
• Students collaborate to discover for themselves Onondaga and Modoc cultures and values by completing graphic organizers (Handouts 2-5) that focus on origin archetypes and details the storytellers intentionally included. 
• To enhance your classroom management, lesson plan includes opportunities to segue from discussions about the storytellers’ cultures to your own classroom culture. Examples of how to accomplish this are included in the Lesson Plan.
