Reflection: Self-Talk The Titanic: Wrapping it All Up - Section 5: The "L"


I loved this unit! Yes, it was a great deal of work to plan lessons that reviewed every skill taught in our non-fiction and fiction units this year, introduce a new writing process, find resources, and create a website that supported it all. But, it was so worth it. I really believe this is how it should be done. Units shouldn’t be skilled based or segmented by topics. Rather they should be full of multi-genre, multi-modal lessons that consider student interests. Throughout the process, I saw students engaged more than ever before. Not only were they making connections and asking great questions in class, but they were returning from the library with books on the Titanic, purchasing their own texts through Scholastic book clubs, and watching shows on the topic at home! This unit created a quest for knowledge like no other. It inspired me to start the process and begin again on a new topic!
