Product Description
This is a PDF Version of SMART Board presentation You do NOT need SMART Notebook to open these PDF's, but the PDF's are not editable. I do sell the SMART Notebook version as well.

Social Issues Book Clubs - Reading - COMPLETE BUNDLE - 13 sessions - 5th Grade - PDF Version

NOTE: This is a HUGE file - about 136 MB zipped.

This is the complete bundle of all the SMART Board presentations - from Lesson 1 through Lesson 13 (see below).

Lesson 01: What is a social issue?
Lesson 02: Identify social issues in literature
Lesson 03: Use evidence from the text to talk about social issues
Lesson 04: Readers recognize social issues as something being unfair
Lesson 05: Identifying points of view
Lesson 06: Compare and contrast points of view
Lesson 07: Readers connect characters with the social issues they face
Lesson 08: Readers empathize with the social issues characters face
Lesson 09: Recognizing stereotypical thinking in stories and characters
Lesson 10: Readers use specific citations from books to talk about social issues
Lesson 11: Readers compare and contrast social issues - Part 1
Lesson 12: Readers compare and contrast social issues - Part 2
Lesson 13: Readers can make text-to-self connections about social issues

NOTE: This unit is available in PDF or SMART Notebook versions. You only need to look through my products to find the version you want. I have priced both the same - even though the PDF version is not editable. I spent the same amount of time creating both versions and, in fact, had to go through an extra step to create the PDF.

NOTE: There are many Calkins units of studies that I have created in the same format for Reading and Writing for 3rd and 5th grade (the grades I have taught): These units are either available now or will be by August 15, 2016: Make sure to “follow” me and I will be sending out updates as more become available. But check back often, too, as sellers are only able to send out updates to buyers once a month.

Includes a planning document that goes through more talking points, a pre-/post-assessment document to use to show learner growth, and a student survey that assists in forming book clubs and identifying social issues of interest.

The lessons follow the Workshop structure of Connection, Teaching Point, Teaching, Active Engagement, Independent Work, and Share. Each of these sections have a different background color and are identified on most slides in the upper right portion of the slide.

Please note: This particular unit does not follow the plan set out by Lucy Calkins in her A CURRICULAR PLAN FOR THE READING WORKSHOP, GRADE 4, 2011–2012, nor any other Calkins unit. We felt that we needed to be more clear in our teaching.


Because many of the components are visual and the verbiage is written on the screen, this is ideal for classrooms with hearing impaired or deaf students. Interpreters will be grateful because they can point to the the words and get a break from signing.

NOTE: The preview and thumbnails are just a FEW slides from Session 06 of this unit, but all the files follow the same format with Connection, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link, MidWorkshop Teaching Point, and Share.


It incorporates all the elements of the Reading Workshop - Connection, Teaching, Active Engagement, etc.

It includes advance prep guidance, teacher's notes, and a slide that correlates with the material in the book.

It includes a summary teaching document, a pre-/post-assessment document, and a student survey.

Comments and questions are always appreciated.
