Dive Into the Sea of Teacher Feedback!

May 29, 2014
If you’re looking for a week-long reading project for your Grade 3 class, CC.BetterLesson has what you’re looking for!
NEA Master Teacher Nicole Prejna has five awesome lessons built around Mary Pope Osborne’s chapter book Dark Day in the Deep Sea. It’s a week-long adventure during which students dive head first into the novel to explore and gain a full understanding of the contextual emotions, character traits and vocabulary. One user found Nicole’s vocabulary bookmark useful. See her comment and Nicole’s response on the lesson “Dark Day in the Deep Sea – Day One”.
The user wrote: “Nicole, I love this lesson and would love to duplicate the vocabulary bookmark for the novel I am starting. Is it possible for you to send it to me in a word document so that I can modify it? Thanks so much for sharing!”
Nicole responded: “Hi Colleen! I’m so glad you’re finding the vocabulary bookmark helpful! Please send me your email, and I’d be glad to send you the word doc. Thanks so much! -Nici”


Further along in the week’s adventure, another user praised how inspiring Nicole’s teaching is in the Community Feedback section of “Dark Day in the Deep Sea – Day Four”.

The user wrote: “Thank you so much for this wonderful series of lessons and resources. I am very grateful for your expertise and generosity. What great ideas, art work, in-depth resources and inspiration. THANKS!”
Nicole responded: “Hi Mary Ellen! I really appreciate your nice comments. I’m so happy that you’ll find this set of lessons helpful with your group of students in Oregon. That is one great thing about the Common Core, we are all working toward the same goals, and can share ideas across the country. Thank you so much! Take care. Nici”

Nicole’s inspired instruction doesn’t end there. Check out all of her creative lessons when you log in to CC.BetterLesson and leave her some feedback of your own.
