PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bring inferencing, vocabulary, language and social skills lessons to a whole new level as your middle school students choose their own path with these two, no prep You Decide Stories!

These illustrated and highly engaging stories are made available in two formats:

No Print:

These You Decide Stories can be viewed on a tablet, computer or smartphone (instructions included) and allow students to simply press buttons to make choices throughout the story. In addition, printable graphic organizers have been included to help students engage in critical thinking, express the pros and cons of various scenarios and analyze social language vocabulary words.

Printable:

Both stories are also provided as a separate, printable version, which is designed to be low-ink. This version is made unique by the graphic organizers embedded into each printed page. As students navigate pages to take their interactive journey, they can use each graphic organizer to discuss the pros and cons of each choice they consider, analyze social vocabulary words as well as new vocabulary meanings derived from context clue practice.

Social skills through character perspective-taking, problem-solving and the study of body language in character illustrations.

Reasoning skills through analysis and discussion of the pros and cons of the paths being considered for characters in the story with the assistance of simple graphic organizers.

Oral-language as students decide which path to take, their justification for taking it and reflect on questions at the end of the story.

Vocabulary and social language embedded throughout this highly interactive story.

This multi-faceted middle school packet contains 68 context clue clouds that allow students to practice using context clue strategies to determine the meaning of high-level vocabulary embedded throughout both stories.

Both no-print and printable formats include graphic organizers which allow students to analyze their reasoning behind the decisions they make and internalize new vocabulary acquired.
