Making Memoirs and Visions: An Inquiry Based Thematic Unit for Helping 5th Graders To Retain, Understand, and Make Active Use of Knowledge.
Fluellen, Jerry
A year-long thematic unit for fifth-graders combines critical thinking and whole language frameworks to help students retain, understand, and make active use of knowledge within and across domains. Using systematic instruction in critical thinking, students explore the fundamental human concepts of race, sex, age, and power. David Perkins'"knowledge as design" method of critical thinking, the National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking framework for teaching and assessing critical thinking, S. Lytle and M. Botel's Pennsylvania Framework for reading, writing, and talking, and Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences are integrated to help students read and remake the world.
