Unit 6

What do we want students to be able to know and do?

From Standards:

Essential Learnings:

  1. Students will be able to analyze picture books and the use of narrative techniques (dialogue, actions, vivid descriptions) to depict a theme/message.
  2. Students will be able to write, illustrate and record a picture book that contains narrative techniques and clearly depicts a theme.

Develop Assessments:

NOTE: The passage is not a complete narrative, and your revised passage does not have to be a complete narrative.  Focus on the wording, description, and pacing, not on completing the story.
