Let us help make your planning easier!


Students will study survival stories and decide what characteristics, personality traits, and outlooks different survivors have in common. The focus is on people who overcome tragic events and overwhelming odds and then use their talents and skills to help others or make the world a better place. They will explore the conventions of films by watching either a documentary about the Lost Boys of Sudan or Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer) and compare the differences in how stories are told through film versus articles about the events. Emphasis on the language we use to share stories of events, putting things in logical or chronological orders, and to convey emotions.


This set contains a complete MYP unit plan, a customized Padlet full of multimodal texts and resources, a digital student interactive notebook, summative assessments, and more. 


We map all of the global contexts, key and related concepts, tech integration, covering an extensive range of multimodal text types, and service connections into a complete curriculum freeing you up to focus on building the English lessons within this framework to meet your students' needs. The MYP unit planner, texts, and assessments are differentiated for emergent, capable, and proficient students.

Caffeine helps me stay up and create free (or nearly) resources. Help me keep my java levels up so I don't get caught sleeping in class. :)
