events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in the text as well as to tell what the text is about.
Writing- This unit provides students with the opportunity to teach others about topics of interest to them. Unlike other units, this unit is scaffolded throughout to allow students to dive deeper into their research, making interpretations along the way. As part of their research, students will wrestle with citations, primary documents, conflicting views on a subject, and with the challenge of incorporating and synthesizing information of all sorts into a logically structured text. Students will research a topic of choice and will draw on the craft of informational writing to compose an engaging, detailed, and informative text
Math- Module 6: Decimal Fractions
