End of Unit 2 Assessment: Working with Two Texts - Reading, Listening, Summarizing, and Synthesizing

This End of Unit 2 Assessment: Working with Two Texts - Reading, Listening, Summarizing, and Synthesizing lesson plan also includes:

As a summative assessment for this unit on colonial trade, fourth graders listen to and read informational texts in order to demonstrate their ability to take notes, write summaries, and draw connections. Young scholars first listen as the teacher reads aloud a text about a New York merchant, taking categorized notes on the information they hear. Next, 4th graders independently read a piece of writing about shipbuilders, once again taking notes using the provided graphic organizer. Finally, they use their notes to answer multiple choice questions, write a summary about shipbuilders, and write a paragraph describing the interdependence of these two trades. The lesson plan provides a complete assessment of the listening, reading, and writing skills developed by pupils during the course of this research-based unit.
