Multimodal and Multisensory Learning Activities
In each module, there is a range of learning experiences across the lessons. The icons in the Module Content in the TE will help you identify the different types investigations, while the lesson summaries in the Driving Questions Overview will add more context and list the resources provided for each lesson (e.g. Read-Alouds, Trade Books, kit items, interactives and videos).
Look for EL support, Special Needs support, Cultural Connections, and higher-order DOK Challenge activities in the sidebars of every lesson in the TE. A highlight of the differentiated instruction for each DQ is provided in the TE (Grade 4 Module 4 DQ1L3 English Learners TE p. 25).
Every module has complementary Leveled Readers in four levels (Below, On, Above, EL), plus Spanish, with lessons to build language acquisition and develop informational text reading skills. On Level lessons are in the back of the TE, other levels are available digitally. The digital version of the Twig Books and Leveled Readers includes a text-to-speech function.
Videos are integrated frequently throughout each module—just look for the reduxes in the TE. Videos are found online in the Digital Resources section of each lesson. Closed captions are provided for each video in English and Spanish.
