This End of Unit 2 Assessment: Evidence-Based Paragraph Writing lesson plan also includes:
What is life like for an Iroquois boy living in modern times? The book, Eagle Song, is the vehicle for learners to explore the development of the main character, Danny Bigtree. This is the final assessment for a larger unit in which learners were explicitly taught close reading skills and efficient writing strategies. The graphic organizer provided with the plan is a great tool to help organize students' thoughts. Note: This unit also supplements social studies curriculum for New York state teachers.
