Course Description:

Escape Room Literature

Based upon the Teachers College Reading and Writing Workshop format, this week will be devoted to third and fourth grade readers and writers who will continue to develop their reading and writing skills, learning about power and purpose. This week, students will be exposed to selections including mystery and suspense.

The writing session will coincide with the reading unit. This week, the students will be writing their own mystery stories with suspenseful or mysterious settings and plots. This week will allow them a unique experience to develop informed theories about how exciting mystery stories  are written.

While reading they will continue to learn to develop their stamina, fluency, and comprehension. Each day, students will participate in reading and writing mini-lessons, have time to read and write independently, engage in one-on-one conferences with the teacher, and receive individualized instruction. They will learn to deepen their reading comprehension and lift the level of their own writing through the use of a variety of literacy skills, strategies, tools, and mentor texts.
