Sign of the Beaver Unit
May 6, 2001
The stated learning gap is difficulty decoding unknown words. The unit Sign of the Beaver was chosen because it requires the students to read from the chapter book. The 3-5 grade cluster Reading content standard tells us that the student will develop the reading skills necessary for word recognition, comprehension, interpretation, analysis, evaluation and appreciation of the written text. I chose the Sign of the Beaver unit because it challenges my 4th grade special education students to use the Internet to explore the topic based on this chapter book to improve their decoding skills as addressed in teacher pre-survey question #22.
