This unit was designed in Understanding by Design format with a Literacy focus on Biographies of Inspirational people from Latin America.
The unit is aimed towards a 5th grade level but standards can be adjusted for any other grade (1-8).
Unit includes teaching points/lesson topics for each day for Reading and Writing Workshop, overall end of unit assessment/project/rubric, standards, and much more!
The unit is cross curricular with social studies where students research a Latin American leader then place themselves in their shoes to write about the pivoting moment that changed their lives! My students really enjoyed this unit and I'm sure yours will too!
Thank you for looking!
