Our Current Units of Study
This unit will build on all essential nonfiction comprehension reading skills along with adding new work that teaches students to compare and contrast texts, analyze their claims and argument, investigate authors’ points of view, critique and design their own independent analysis of urgent nonfiction research topics. The students will pursue their learning journey in the company of fellow researchers in small research groups. In addition, students will make connections across texts, draw conclusions, design their own informed opinions and apply newfound knowledge by creating instructional materials for peers.
