Cross curricular lessons are fantastic, because they can incorporate so much in one lesson that assists students' understanding on how subjects intertwine. It is so important for students to understand how each subject relates and supports the other subjects they are learning about. The "Read, Write, Math Project Lesson" incorporates all of these tasks!
This lesson brings Language Arts, Collaboration, Peer Evaluation, Self Evaluation, and Math together.
The 1st task is for students to read (after you describe the project to them), the 2nd task is for students to research the topic in the lesson "Why Math is Important" or another topic, the 3rd task is for learners to write about their topic in their own words, the 4th task students collaborate together and then make any necessary revisions, the 5th task is for students to share their voice and opinion, and the 6th task is for peer and self evaluations.
