"My Side of the Mountain"
Aug 26, 2001
The stated learning gap is my students are having difficulty writing in complete thoughts or in an organized fashion. This unit relates to the curriculum standard: The student will develop the structural and creative skills necessary to produce written language that can be read and interpreted by various audiences. This unit will address the survey item of using the Internet to research topics. I chose this unit "My Side of the Mountain" because it follows along with the book and assigns various writing activities that relate to the story that can be done by students individually or with groups. This unit is based on the book "My Side of the Mountain". During this unit the students may go to various internet sites and find out information about the Catskill Mountains, the peregrine falcon and other information that is presented in this book. There are a lot of writing activities from keeping a journal, to writing a school newspaper, and writing reports.
