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.

All ten lessons in this unit:

  • align to CCSS
  • follow rigorous, relevant, brain-compatible instructional, planning and assessment methods
  • include performance tasks that reflect those found in Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)

Included with this item:

  • How and why we think this will help you and your students transition to CCSS
  • Elements of each lesson and a rationale for why we included each
  • A list of simple materials, resources, and classroom management strategies that would be helpful to have on hand while teaching the unit)
  • Unit overview, or a one-page quick look at the entire unit
  • Lesson plans (10 lessons total)
  • Appendix of all printable materials included in unit, including exit cards, checklist and rubric
