I love the fact that our students are willing to work twice as much to master two languages. The students I work for have been in a Dual Language Immersion program since kindergarten at a Title I school in the East Bay. They are an amazing group of students who are eager to learn not only both languages, but content as well.
Every group of students is unique, thus the needs of our students vary every year.
However, something that never changes is the eagerness with which each school year begins. They are eager to learn, but also to continue building a community.
We will be embarking on a journey through the revolutionary war period. Part of the journey will include reading different non-fiction and fiction titles linked to the revolutionary war.
For this specific part of the journey, we will be analyzing the historical fiction genre and identifying the historical facts in the book Revolutionary War on Wednesday (in Spanish).
Students will act out key events in the story. This will then lead up to the creation of their own historical fiction writing based on another key event during this time period.
Providing my students with Revolutionary War on Wednesday gives them a clear example of the elements of a narrative while also providing insight on the time period.
