These introductory plans will springboard students into the fictional text, Night of the Twister.  This modified text, and informational PowerPoint featuring four natural disasters, was inspired by a real event that happened in Nebraska in 1980.  The modified text was created using more simplistic language while keeping the main idea intact.  Students will recount events and analyze characteristics that define natural disasters, while answering the overarching unit question: How do natural disasters impact us? This set of lessons is intended to span between 5-10 instructional periods and will also set the stage for specific learning structures and routines.  Students will use response strategies to identify how nature can impact us.  Through reading and discussion, students will cite key details and make inferences based evidence that support the main idea of portions of the text read.  Included are examples of text dependent questions and sample questions to guide instruction.  Contained in this plan are day-by-day lessons.

Terence Lau & Lisa Johnson’s The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business is a book for today’s student, who expects learning to be comprised not only of substance, but also of interactive exercises and multimedia. This book streamlines the presentation of material to ensure that every page is relevant, engaging, and interesting to undergraduate business students, without losing the depth of coverage that they need to be successful in their academic journeys and in their professional careers. This is not Legal Environment of Business (LEB) “light.” Rather, this is LEB without risk of students’ eyes glazing over in boredom or from lack of comprehension. This is LEB presented in an exciting way, where every page is interesting to students and relevant to real life.

The authors recognize that the sheer volume of information to be covered in a LEB course makes it one of the more challenging courses for the business undergraduate. Not only do typical LEB texts read like the first year curriculum at law school, but also the LEB course is grounded in the humanities, which can make the subject even more demanding for students who are also taking statistics, economics, finance, and accounting.

Each chapter contains not only substantive law, but also illustrative videos, interactive exercises for hands-on learning, and discussion questions for critical thought. Additionally, each chapter presents “A Question of Ethics” section, which contains real world ethical dilemmas relevant to the topic under study. These videos, exercises, discussion questions, and ethics sections all provide opportunities for students to apply concepts that they are learning in the context of relevant LEB topics that shape or restrain actual decision-makers’ actions. It’s real world practice in the safety of the classroom environment.

Lau & Johnson’s The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business is a textbook that students will enjoy reading. This will encourage them to come to class prepared, and free you to teach the kind of course you want to teach. Request a desk copy and see for yourself.

This modified text, and a full length feature movie, was inspired by the true story of Winter, an injured bottlenose dolphin, and her recovery. Selected as an anchor text for this unit, Dolphin Tale: The Junior Novel provides many opportunities for third graders to engage in deep comprehension with a motivating and relevant text.  The modified text, was created using more simplistic language while keeping the main idea and characters intact.

Later in this unit, students will read a modified version of, Winter’s Tail, the informative account of Winter’s rescue and her rehabilitation. This set of lessons is intended to span between 6-10 instructional periods and will also set the stage for specific learning structures and routines.  Students will use response strategies to identify relationships among characters and animals.  Through reading and discussion, students will cite key details and evidence that support the main idea of portions of the text read. Contained in this plan are day-by-day lessons.
