Little House in the Big Woods
Apr 19, 2001
The stated learning gap is reading comprehension. The unit Little House in the Big Woods was chosen because it requires the students to read a novel as a class and then practice skills on-line. The fourth grade Language Arts 3-5 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 allows students to read the novel then practice the skills as outlined in the online unit completing the outlined activities and visiting the online links to complete the research of the unit. This will address the teacher profiler pre-survey items of increasing student use of the Internet for research and for practicing skills on-line.
