Product Description
This mini-unit focuses on the events of September 11, 2001. Students learn about 9/11 through a gallery walk, jigsaw reading activity and short response writing. These activities work together to give students a strong understanding about this horrific day in American History.

This mini-unit includes:
• A Gallery Walk with 40+ items. The items are a mix of newspaper clippings, short readings, and a student reporter worksheet.
• Jigsaw reading passages. There are 4 different passages were students read and write the central ideas of each paragraph in the margin.
• A short mini-lesson on how to write a central idea.
• 4 short response questions to accompany each Jigsaw reading passage.
• A mini-lesson showing students how to write a short response that includes a model response paragraph.
• A 1-question short response quiz where students will have to show their writing skills.
• A SmartBoard or PowerPoint Slide Show Presentation. Both presentations are the same but in different software.

The activities can be set up how you feel is best for your class. In my class, I set it up as follows:
Day 1: Gallery Walk Activity
Day 2: Mini-lesson on Central Idea and Jigsaw Reading Activity. Depending on your class this can take 1 or 2 days. Some teachers set it up like a typical Jigsaw and others set it up so students read each passage individually . It is up to you and the needs of your students!
Day 3: Mini-lesson on short response writing. Students write responses based on their Jigsaw reading passage.
Day 4: Short response 1-question quiz.
