conducting an interview about recycling with a student from a different school using technology. Students will write their
own questions and go to the interview prepared.
synthesizing their knowledge about sustainable practices like recycling into a final product that can be posted online.
Examples: slide show, video, comic book, Prezi, etc. This will include information from their interview, three articles and
at least one video. (The resources will be provided by the teacher.)


Students will create a recycling plan for their home.
-writing a 3 to 5 paragraph informational report on recycling.
-annotating and responding to questions about at least 3 different articles about sustainable practices.
-describing the main ideas, details, inferences made and structure of the articles.
-creating a tree map showing different kinds of recycling or sustainable practices.
-teacher observation of group work and discussions.

being able to read closely from multiple texts about recycling and synthesize that information to
answer the essential questions.
-quick writes
-observation
-quizzes after videos
-As a whole class, students create a circle map about recycling
-Teacher shows videos about recycling
-Class goes over the essential questions and teacher explains the performance tasks, providing
purpose for the learning. Get students excited about collaborating with students from other
locations.
-Vocabulary instruction ideas: foldables in science notebooks, flash cards, word webs, jigsaw
posters
-Teacher models how to read closely and annotate with one text about recycling
-Students work in pairs to replicate the process of reading closely and annotating the text
-Students write interview questions about recycling, they begin by interviewing to family
members
-Student revise questions to interview a student from another grade level at school
-Students revise questions again to interview (using technology) a student from another school
(teacher will assist with matching students)
-Students will read two more articles independently and use the close reading and annotating
strategies (possible differentiation - teacher provides reading level appropriate articles, or
students choose areas within recycling to research)
-Group Task - Create a presentation, video, or skit to share all of the information learned about
recycling, including information from interviews.
-Culminating Task - Students individually write up and present a plan for how they will recycle
in their own lives.
-understanding recycling and why it is
important
-annotating text correctly
-making inferences
-writing understandable and complete
interview questions
