Implementing District Standards
This unit is designed to pair with the 9
grade English I curriculum which address standards in reading, writing, and speaking and listening. A majority of the work in the resource room will focus on the speaking and listening portion. I have listed these below:
SL 9-10 10.1 a-c:
5.62 The student will participate in a verbal exchange related to a grade level topic or text with peers and/or adults.
5.63 The student will demonstrate appropriate turn taking, including, maintaining eye contact, taking turns and actively listening and engaging in an appropriate verbal exchange.
Through the discussion of identity, the students will be engaged in discourse which will force students listen to one another and engage in conversation about grade level topics. The reading and writing components of the English curriculum will be address in the general education classroom.
