The presenter will walk participants through the process of creating solid units for reading, writing, and social studies with some connections to math and science. Participants will gain a clearer understanding of how to integrate content across the disciplines to create a more rigorous curriculum for students by engaging in core reading and writing strategies that support the content. Participants will engage in the process of discussion and decision making as part of the student experience within an integrated unit though historical fiction, relevant nonfiction texts, and simulations. Participants will walk away with a list of historical fiction books related to American History.
