A Unit of Study Approach for Teaching Common Core State Standards for Writing
Pytash, Kristine E.; Morgan, Denise N.
Middle School Journal (J3), v44 n3 p44-51 Jan 2013
In this article, the authors provide an overview of the unit of study framework for teaching writing and explain how it sets the stage for developing "academic momentum" in students (Strahan, 2008, p. 4). To help readers understand the unit of study framework in action, the authors describe how a unit unfolds in one subject area, language arts. They then highlight its natural application in disciplinary and interdisciplinary work. (Contains 3 figures.)
