Language Arts: See Dick and Jane!

Learners compare and contrast their current reading texts with those of the 1950s Dick and Jane series. Among the areas they critique are the words, illustrations, and time periods. As a writing exercise, students rewrite a page from a contemporary primary reader and edit it in the style of Dick and Jane.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
