The Ideas section for this week's Inbox
focuses on Native American Heritage, in celebration of Native American Heritage Month. The section links to the related ReadWriteThink calendar entry
, which includes several relevant lesson plans.
The first of the month also means it's time for a content report. Between last night and today, I edited and posted two more lessons. Designing Museum Exhibits for The Grapes of Wrath: A Multigenre Project
is a 9-12 lesson plan that asks students to create six artifacts in a variety of genres that demonstrate their understanding of a related research topic and its significance.
The second lesson, Choosing One Word: Summarizing Shel Silverstein’s “Sick,”
explores comprehension by asking K-2 students to pick one word that represents a reading. In this case it's the Silverstein poem, but the activity could be completed with any text.
