Objective: C The students will be able to write a book report on the books they have read in the unit on bats and clapper rails.
Anticipatory Set: They then will relate on the authors who wrote these books as fellow researchers and collaborators from the sources they got on the world wide web sites.
The teacher will review the How to Write Book so that the students will have learned what writing is all about. Then the teacher will assign group five to go find books by the authors of Stellaluna and The Clapper Rail to see if they have written other books and then with the other books collected they will all write a book report of the book they each read . This will also be a part of the final day contest for awards and honors granted the best readers.
Accommodations: There will be the same assignments in Braille, and Sign Language charts.
