Template for building a cohesive thematic unit

For educators, magazine articles can be building blocks, and thematic lessons help build the house. Formulated with two or three related full text articles, a cohesive thematic study can build on factual knowledge and draw students into activities that:

•     Build vocabulary
•     Build expository writing skills
•     Explore content areas
•     Spark discussion and debate
•     Encourage higher level thinking skills
•     Match student reading levels
•     Promote literacy for both literature and information technology
