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 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.

Reading

This unit addresses four 6th grade reading standards taught throughout the course of a trimester. These lessons are designed to be taught one day a week, while the other days in the trimester are focused on writing units. This unit is designed to be co-taught with a general education and special education teacher, but can be easily adapted if only one teacher is present.

Students will be working in Google Classroom with a lesson titled Killer Smog. The article is based on a historcal event. In 1952, a thick, dark smog blanketed London for days, and left thousands dead in its wake. This lesson will examine the causes of the disaster, as well as the lasting environmental reforms it inspired.

Currently, poetry is something we teach “if there is time” at the end of the year. I would love to make poetry a more integral part of the 1st grade curriculum. Poetry is currently taught by the students reading a preprinted packet of poetry and the students knowing that they are poems.  It's a very archaic way of teaching it, and I would love to change that.

"The Cow’s Horn” is about a boy who doesn’t make his town’s travel soccer team. On a deeper level, it conveys the message that what might be seen as failure can also lead to valuable opportunities.
