Sign of the Beaver
May 15, 2001
The stated learning gap is comprehension of written text. The unit "Sign of the Beaver" allows students to read a high interest book and then integrates the social studies, language arts, and math curriculum with reading through follow-up lessons. Under the the Tennessee Curriculum Framework, Reading: Grades 3-5 Learning Expectations, students will improve comprehension by interpreting, analyzing, syntheizing, and evaluating written text. Also, students will use comprehension strategies to enhance understanding, to make predictions, and to respond to literature.
