As I am posting this final project, I am watching a CNN special on Malala. Wow! What an inspirational young women. https://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2013/10/11/the-bravest-girl-in-the-world/ Everyone should know about her strength. I can’t wait to see what else she does in her life. I hope she What an inspiration.
Anyways, on to the main attraction… course one final project. Being an integrator on maternity leave, I wanted to develop a lesson that would help one of the grade levels I service. I browsed through Atlas Rubicon, the program we use to document our curriculum, and found a 7th grade unit about Historical Fiction that was in need of some love. Click here to check out the un-techy version.
Historical fiction is my favorite fiction reading genre. I love reading a story that teaches me about history and I love the idea of introducing this genre to students. I added a blog and timeline project to the unit as well as a Quizlet vocabulary component. I hope the 7th grade teachers are open to integrating this technology when the teach this unit at the end of the year.
