My students need a class set of the novel Dragonwings.
With common core curriculum and standards, students are needing to learn how to read and critically analyze complex themes and concepts within texts.
I have a bright and creative group of 6th graders that love to read!!!
In our work so far this school year, they have demonstrated a love for completing group projects including skits, powerpoint presentations and speeches. They really enjoy learning more about characters/famous people and connecting to the content with experiences from their own lives.
With common core, students need to be able to analyze and interpret themes within texts. We will use Dragonwings to teach a full literature unit with the novel as an anchor text. Students will analyze characters, themes, and will complete a culminating writing project.
Having a class set of this novel will help me teach whole class common core literature.
The students will become critical thinkers and be able to analyze literature in this unit and in the future.
