Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Unit

The following unit was created for a tier 3 reading intervention class that typically is 3 or more years below reading level in grades 6-8. This unit is approximately 2 weeks long, although I would revisit main idea throughout the semester since it can be weaved into any topic.

This is a unit written for a 6th grade Academically Talented class. We read three novels in the The Breadwinner (by Deborah Ellis) series. In addition, we use online sources to research the area including videos, research sites, and discussion boards.

The best way to learn to write figurative language is to read figurative language written by experts! For these lessons, students will choose a book that contains wonderful figurative language. While they read, they will share their favorite figurative language passages with their classmates. They will end the unit with a final Glogster assignment.

Grammar works better in conjunction with writing! For this unit, students will work together to review the parts of speech in grammar. They will then take that knowledge to collaboratively research a persuasive paper on why grammar should or should not be taught in school.
