The lessons in this unit teach ten critical thinking skills required for fluency in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and College and Career Readiness (CCR) anchor standards in English Language Arts.
When students become fluent with these thinking skills, they will be able to transfer the skills to any content area. We’ve taken important concepts we know students need in order to be successful with CCSS and in a classroom (and in life, by the way); we then embedded those concepts into a relatable and meaningful unit of study for students. By using their own lives as a vehicle to teach this first week of school unit, we create an atmosphere in our classrooms of collaboration, invitation & innovation.
