Product Description

Obtain student buy-in and build anticipation for key concepts by having student’s research themes and track them while reading. Early in the unit, have students research the denotation, connotation, key historical events, and illustrate the theme word or phrase. On the back, students track key moments in the text that relate to the prompt. After reading, students consider these key events and develop the author’s theme statement.

I hope these tips help you maximize student buy-in and interest in your next unit!
