A 21st century take on the old 4th grade mission project.

They must then use screencastify to show off their work and give a virtual tour of both their mission and their website.
Students will analyze current music to find poetic terminology and references. They will highlight accordingly and add comments to lines to explain the meaning behind it.
You are going to write a travel blog about your virtual vacation. This will be a multi-part project that includes reading, writing, and math.

Chinese immigration in the United States, specifically California, is a time in history that is often overlooked in public schooling. Using these resources as a prelude to reading The Earth Dragon Awakes is a great way to expose your students to the struggles and hardships that many Chinese immigrants and Chinese Americans faced. It also provides the time to have a discussion with students about the racism many Chinese immigrants faced in the past, and still face today. How did the stereotypes exclude immigrants and shape societal culture? I found that teaching this lesson before reading the Earth Dragon Awakes tremendously improved my students interest in the book and allowed them to analyze a variety of texts revolving around specific situations.
Memes are an amazing way to keep students both engaged and thinking critically. If you aren't familiar with memes or what they mean, there is a file located within the folder that has examples. It is by far my students favorite way to demonstrate their learning.
Students can demonstrate their learning on a familiar medium. I have found that it is great for book analysis or sequencing/detailing historical events.
