Abstract

Teachers enhance their students’ learning when they relate classroom activities to students’ interests and lives. In this paper, the author presents a series of instructional units to teach composition to eighth graders in a rural New York public school. Units focus on student engagement and cover the following diverse topics: “Families and Friends”, “Patriotism for Our Country”, “The Civil War”, “Observing Animal Life”, and “The Westward Movement”. Each unit includes a suggested reading list, as well as accompanying lessons that focus on various aspects of context, syntax/construction/grammar, narration, and editing techniques.
