Professionally structured resource with ample information. The beauty is that the standards are also linked. Very useful.

I love the template and how it is detailed. I also like the ways standards are stated. Question: Is this resources available for others not participating? I mean.. is this shareable?

I like how this resource considers students prior knowledge or what prior knowledge is needed in order to understand new information.

The lesson template is logical in sequence and flow. It considers that students will need some scaffolding, has guiding question stems for research to keep students focused, the think/pair/ share is a nice form of collaboration, and pulse check on student understanding. I would like to see options of student choice for how to display student learning related to their research similar to how the texts had options.

Lots of different components and the opportunity to share directly with your Google classroom.

The beauty of this resource is teaching students to evaluate what they have learned using the content that they have learned.
