Haudenosaunee:  A Community that Transcends Time


In the second unit, students read an informational text to deepen their knowledge of the Haudenosaunee with a focus on determining main ideas and supporting details, note taking, using context clues to determine word meanings, fluency, and paragraph writing. The mid-unit on-demand assessment gauges students’ ability to analyze a new section of text about the Iroquois on their own. At the end of Unit 2, students draw evidence from the informational text to describe how the lives of the Haudenosaunee have changed and remained the same over time.
