Our Children are Learning to Survive

After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
This eight week literature course is built around short stories, legends and novels whose themes ideas mirrors every child’s culture. (as determined by the group’s ethnic background.) It is designed as a classroom reading program for emergent, early and fluent readers who have been previously identified. My experience when teaching this Unit, along with the characteristics of my students (their prior writing experience, observed library skills, attention spans, and ability to work together in groups) guided the number and selection of the texts and objectives. I estimate that the whole Unit (divided in segments according to the books read) would take me from 5 to 8 weeks, given an instructional period of 45 minutes, every day.
