The stated Learning gap is reading comprehension. The unit "Stone Fox" was chosen because it requires the students to read a novel and then engage in activities that will improve their comprehension. The 3-5 Language Arts cluster Reading content standard states that the student will develop the reading skills necessary for word recognition,comprehension, interpretation, analysis, evaluation, and appreciation of the written text. I chose this unit because it allowed my students to use the Internet, a need identified in my pre-survey. Short-term success will be measured by increase of internet use, increase in student's reading unit test and a teacher created rubric, found at the end of this track. Long-term success will be measured by comparing my Terra Nova median reading scores to the county's Terra Nova median reading scores.
