Harrisville Central School Teachers are Human Grades 3-5 ELA
Unit Plan Summary: New students and some returning students are not familiar with the staff and room locations of teachers in grades K-5. My class will create a booklet for other students to familiarize them with the school and the staff. Students will generate interview questions, complete the interview, and create a page for the booklet. Hopefully they will then create a video of these interviews as read by the student.
Unit Questions How do I write things that people will want to read? How can I get good feedback on my writing and give my classmates good feedback on their writing? How do good writers proofread their writing for spelling? How do writers make sure their writing is in good sentences? How do I use the computer to write my interview ? Content Questions
