This bundle includes: CSI Activity, Scooby-doo Activity, Puzzle Piece End Unit Review, PowerPoints and handouts for each activity, as well as a sample starter Power Point for the unit.
Worksheets and handouts for listed activities all include a scoring box that highlights the specific CCSS that the lesson or activity addressed and the level at which it is addressed.
I have a sheet students continually update (roughly every two weeks) as papers are passed back and reviewed. They update these sheets according to the standards. This way, not only am I aware of what standards they are doing well or poor in, they are aware and can adjust their goals accordingly. They really like to see how far they have come at the end of the year and they truly know where they excel and what areas of Language Arts they need to focus their studies on.
Stories suggested for this unit (not included):
"Sorry Right Number" by Stephen King
"The Bus Ride" by Sahar Sabati
"The Landlady" by Roald Dahl
"The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe
"Lamb to the Slaughter" by Roald Dahl
"The Monkeys Paw" by W.W. Jacobs
This is a great unit that really hooks students into reading. I like to begin my school year with this as it hits a lot of the CCSS, but also there is "buy in" from students. When we get to items that students struggle with, the expectations and environment have been established and students push themselves in the classroom. It's awesome!
