During this ELA unit, students will explore the theme of "Tolerance" through the dual lenses of fiction text and nonfiction research. This is a collaborative unit between the classroom teacher and teacher librarian. Each group of students will read one fiction novel or nonfiction selection and will learn about the book's theme by completing nonfiction research. Selected novels include tolerance issues of racism, slavery, immigration, and more. Throughout the unit, students will complete reflective responses.
