Directions for students
EVERYTHING you need for this project which lasts for one week!

I use MAISA curriculum which is aligned with common
core standards. I teach both 4th grade and 5th
grade reading. Here is what I teach my students in our
informational reading unit.
Text Features
Text structures
Main idea and details
Central message of whole text
Teach others about your topic
Topic Specific Vocab words
What they know about characters to study real people
Inferential reading and retelling
After I teach this unit, and I consider them to be expert informational readers I assign this project to my students. I give them 1 week to work on this.
Day 1, I review what I have taught in the unit and introduce the project. I pass out the brainstorm papers and have them work on this. (Monday)
Day 2 and Day 3 I have them work on the paper and go over the rubric for the summary.
Day 4 and Day 5 I pass out the rubric for the poster and have them work on this.
They have the weekend to finish if they need it, and then they are due on Monday.

My students loved this project! I hope you do as well. It is very simple and hardly any work besides printing out the papers for the students.
