What a great read!
Big Question: How do you define strength?
This unit explores classic and modern short stories, speeches, etc. MOST of which are non-fiction. Frequent reading checks/quizzes, graphic organizers, discussions, and assignments will check for understanding. All of the non-fiction texts will focus on people who overcame a great obstacle in a variety of areas (i.e. physical challenges, racism, religous persecution, etc). Below is an overview of the unit components; not all individual assignments are listed.
