This resource was created by Hannah Barnhart in collaboration with Karen Dux as part of the 2019-20 ESU-NDE Digital Age Pedagogy Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Unit Plans promoting BlendEd Learning Best Practices. This Unit Plan is designed for 5th Grade Language Arts.
Learn about Greek gods, heroes, and creatures through digital storytelling produced by students who have learned research techniques.
This Empower Learner Activity engages students in self-assessment, preliminary goal setting and reflection on use of learning strategies within the context of 5th Grade English studying Winin Dixie.
This is an activity that includes student's own ideas and beliefs about the central ideas and important parts of the text. Students will also do a bit of writing to support their opinions. This activity gets at the heart of a text. I see this as introductory to deeper dives into theme. This lesson could be structured to be online or face to face. This is written as a class activity but an online discussion could easily be created after students had followed the protocol a few times and seen the discussion that results. This could easily work in many classrooms through high school.
