Gone but not forgotten: using reference resources to write an obit

Ninth graders find facts about a person and write an obituary. They use a minimum of three facts from at least two different media sources (i.e. - text, electronic database, on-line encyclopedia, website, etc.) They select a famous historical figure to research.

Donna S.
After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
