Curriculum Preview for the Week of May 22nd . . . .

ELA ~ 4th Quarter Unit - What is a Hero?

Essential Questions . . .
-How do heroes affect the society they live in?
-What lessons do literary heroes teach us?
-How do people today respond and prepare to natural events based on what they have learned from the past and new information?
-How are things in nature portrayed in fiction and nonfiction texts?

Our fourth quarter novel is "The Lightning Thief!" The students love reading this book! It is challenging, but it has a great plot and is the first book in a series. Hopefully the students will continue reading the rest of the series throughout the summer months! We will continue to work on inferencing, context clues, theme, and character traits as we study this text. The students will also be learning about Greek Mythology!

**Each quarter the students will complete an Informational Outcome Assessment and a Literature Outcome Assessment. The best way for students to prepare for these assessments is to pay close attention in class, and they should review the formatives and summatives that come home in their Friday Folders. These show how well they are understanding the skills that we are learning in class!
