Here's what we do

Every spring (after testing), I focus on research. I teach media literacy (which at the current moment isn't in our standards... but it's SO important!), as well as "report" writing in the five paragraph essay. We tend to do our research on a famous person (although we may have to change it, since the Social Studies teacher is doing famous people right now!!). I may ask them to write about a favorite activity or hobby (its history and notable characters).

I posted the unit plan on this post, but since I use a lot of materials that others have created, I'm not going to post that... Many of those materials can be found online. One of the best is "Wading Through the Web" from ReadWriteThink

I definitely use this website, when teaching students that not every website that they encounter has true information: http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/
