PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

~Walden, Wordsworth, and Wall-E~ What could these three have in common?

Are strange weather patterns affecting your neck of the woods? Is it hot one day and cold another? Has your town been affected by a recent rash of tornadoes? Is it possible that Thoreau could have been onto something over a century ago?

In this unit plan written for an ELA classroom, transcendental, classic texts meet current texts as the main theme is carried across genres. Students will examine these texts and make connections among texts and to the world around them.

In this unit, you will find classroom-tested strategies, activities, and questions that have worked for my students and serve the purpose of Common Core. The structure of this unit is designed to guide students through the texts, and as they go, the questions and thinking get deeper. The overarching questions are present and addressed in every segment, and the work prepares students for the culminating task. A unit plan such as this one gives the teacher ultimate flexibility in instruction, assessment, and classroom procedure. Even though, every idea and concept is tied together so that students can write an essay for the culminating assignment, you could pick up this unit and just do the pieces that you have time for.

Included in this pack:
•Overarching questions
•Essential questions for each text
•ELA skills connections for each text
•Two full-length writing assignments
•Teaching notes, options, and ideas for each text
•Graphic organizers, text-based questions, interactive activities, and opportunities for discussion
•Answers
•Common Core links
