253 pages — Ready to teach Common Core nonfiction by studying primary documents written by famous Americans? Want to reinforce those standards you currently teach with motivational lessons that show your students how to think critically?
The Common Core Nonfiction Collection is your answer—a compilation of unit plans that covers George Washington’s “Farewell Address,” Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address,” Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms Speech,” and Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” These four unit plans target Common Core Informational Reading Standard 9: Analyzing seminal U.S. documents of historical and literary significance. But each unit also addresses multiple ELA standards in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language.
Designed by two credentialed teachers with 35 years of teaching experience between them, these units have been tested on multiple classes at multiple grade levels. Although originally created to address the 9th-10th grade reading band, these units also work well in American history or literature classes as well as with advanced middle school students and homeschoolers.
This product contains a total of 33 lessons, including activities that teach important technology skills. Each lesson includes instructional aids like student models, rubrics, keys, and Powerpoint and Prezi presentations to help you teach the college and career readiness skills your students will need to achieve future success.
