Sign of the Beaver
Oct 11, 2002
The 4th grade unit "Sign of the Beaver" deals with the learning gap "reading comprehension". This unit uses the book The Sign of the Beaver to teach several reading skills. The 4th grade Language Arts standard states that the student will develop the reading skills necessary for comprehension, analysis, word recognition,interpretation, evaluation, and appreciation of the written text. I chose this unit because it combined several reading skills such as vocabulary, metaphors, comprehension, and similes. This unit also allows students to use the internet to explore several topics dealing with Native American Indians as addressed in question #22 of the teacher and student pre-survey profiler.
