Product Description

After researching islands, students will design, draw, and label an island that reflects their academic, personal, and physical strengths. In addition, students will designate a specific location for their islands and will appropriately display their final products. Students will provide written support for their design, theme, and personal connections. This unit offers an inquiry and research-based interdisciplinary approach to education, with opportunities for personal reflection. No One is an Island will help develop the skills, interests, and abilities essential for lifelong learning. This unit also helps connect and reconnect students to learning as it empowers them to accept responsibility for their own learning for the sake of learning itself. The academic blend of research, application, and reflection provides rigorous and challenging academic content that easily connects with state and school district curriculums.

An overview, tips, guidance, interdisciplinary extensions, and topics for reflection accompany the core lesson. Throughout the unit, students will think, create meaningful products, and make important contributions to their own learning. Students can focus on topics that interest them and can build on the skills and knowledge they learned in previous activities.

Over 35 interdisciplinary Extensions (cognitive and affective strategies that will help students develop skills, improve identified weaknesses, and master content) are included. The varied and flexible Extensions offer opportunities for students to make connections between subject areas and between current activities and previous learning. Making such connections will help students develop the skills and thinking necessary to be successful with topics that are increasingly challenging.

In addition, students will experience the sense of empowerment that comes from taking a leadership role in their own education by setting and working toward goals. They will learn to use time, plan well, work with others, and rely on themselves.

Teachers do not have to be the expert for Extensions. Instead, teachers should be a resource for students as they independently and deliberately investigate areas of interest.
