UNIT OVERVIEW

In this unit students will understand what text features are and how they aid in comprehension of nonfiction text, the difference in primary and secondary sources, and how to determine credible sources.  Because students spend most of their time reading nonfiction in science and social studies, it is beneficial to complete this unit towards the beginning of the school year.  Throughout the year students can continue to talk about these concepts with the readings they use in all subjects.

ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS

How do text features contribute to your understanding of nonfiction?

LEARNER OBJECTIVES

  • Students will be able to identify text features.

  • Students will be able to explain why authors include text features in nonfiction.

Curriculum Maps & Pacing Guides Community Project

noun_map_47766The following link will connect to a shared Google Drive folder allowing you to submit and view curriculum maps and pacing guides aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for English Language Arts and developed by Oklahoma teachers. They are intended to serve as examples and guidance tools for districts to develop strategic plans for implementing the standards.

A curriculum map is a destination. The paths you take to get there are up to the teacher.

Curriculum maps show the terrain and points of interest to the casual traveler. There are roadways or standards to use to get there, some being more expedient than others. You can take along snacks, travel on foot, or take a train.

Where do you want to go and how do you want to get there?
