This unit is exactly what you need to teach your sixth, seventh, and eighth grade learners in an engaging format with the non-fiction book, Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson.
This product is aligned to the 6th grade CCSS literature reading standards.
This unit digs deep into EVERY SINGLE common core informational reading and main writing standard.
As educators, we don’t want to just “hit” the standards, we want to dig deep into every single standard and we want them all to come together into one cohesive and beautiful piece of work. Sometimes it is hard to produce lessons like this all.the.time,
These lessons dig deep into evert single 6th, 7th, and 8th grade CCSS informational and writing standard in an engaging, though-provoking, and fun unit and all the work is done for you.
I was introduced to the “Socratic Seminar” and I fell in love after I saw this method in practice, and I think you will too! You can use these lessons as your reading lessons to teach (and dig deep) into every single CCSS reading literature standard for sixth grade.
I still do guided reading, book clubs, literature circles, and Daily 5 in my classroom, so I know this can work with any type of reading program that you already have in place. These could even be used as a class novel study for read aloud.
In this unit, your students will get tons of support and conversations from their peers, will be exposed to literature and vocabulary at or above their grade level, and become part of a reading community. Yet it still gives you the flexibility to work with groups of students at their particular reading levels. I’m telling you, it’s a game changer.
In this unit you will find:
1. Using this resource in your classroom
