This week long unit of writing is perfectly designed for writing stations that integrate Social Studies, into ELA. There are 2-3 days of pre-writing activities with an emphasis on drawing, a draft activity which includes editing marks for peer revision, and a final copy. The topic integrates geography and the theme of migration and results in a student published blog about what they have learned through their study of their families immigration journey. It is fully editable so you can remove the references to Michigan and insert your home state. Students are asked to think critically while being provided with writing support which keeps them interested and engaged. This station is part of my Michigan Geography bundle, which includes a unit assessment and power point. It could be easily modified for other states.
