PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This thematic unit takes students through seven nonfiction passages with text dependent questions and activities. Watch your students’ own hard work pay off when they complete a performance assignment where they set and track their own measurable goal!

This unit includes:

• Seven high interest nonfiction passages about
o Gabrielle Douglas
o Walt Disney
o Calvin Coolidge
o Abraham Lincoln
o Ancient Egyptians
o Michael Jackson
o Usain Bolt

• Performance Assignment
o Instructions on how to set a measurable goal with example
o Tracking and reflection sheets for four weeks
o Essay prompt and rubric

*Note – The performance assignment takes approximately 5 weeks to complete. However, once students set their goal, they only spend a few minutes a day, three days a week reflecting on their progress. The essay takes an additional week after students complete their goal.
