Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds,
teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.
Opening of Unit
Quotations about justice; the word justice; the essential question for the unit
*When selecting quotations, teachers should consider the link between these quotations and the research project at the end of this unit. Wise choices will make the research piece go more smoothly for teachers, media specialists, and students.
**Teachers may wish to confirm the language of these quotations before using them with students. Quotations often appear in slightly different forms from source to source. As always, these quotations are only suggestions. Teachers remain free to choose their own materials. In addition, teachers should adhere to any Acceptable Use Policy in place in their local school systems regarding the use of Internet sources. These websites have not been through a review process.
