How is the Basic Package used in Missions to Modern Marvels?

Well, we could tell you, but why reinvent the wheel? Carrie and Julie have already done an excellent job of outlining how these books are used in the Missions to Modern Marvels Introduction, so why don’t we have a quick look at that?

(From the Introduction to Missions to Modern Marvels):

Daily storytime sessions are linked to the “Reading about History” box of the plans by historical time period. These books provide the historical backdrop, or a panoramic view of history, while the “Reading about History” readings provide a more factual view.

These scheduled read-alouds are highly recommended, unless you need to economize. Complete listings and book descriptions for these books can be found in the Appendix. These books are sold as a set as a Basic Package, or sold individually, at www.heartofdakota.com.

The “Storytime” box of plans includes bookmark prompts that target higher-level responses. Students select lines to quote and comment upon, use quick sketches to provide visual commentary, ask clarifying and probing questions, make written connections, and share observations, reflections, and musings.

Leading students to think in this manner goes beyond finding one right answer. Rather, students are encouraged to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate what they’ve read to reach their own conclusions. Bookmarks must be copied from the Appendix of Missions to Modern Marvels once every 6 units as directed in the guide.

Note: If you are already doing a Storytime package with a different Heart of Dakota program, you may choose to have 7th-8th grade students read the books in this package on their own by following the plans in the “Storytime” box.

Use coupon code JANUARY-LIBRARY to save!

To apply this month’s savings, just enter coupon code JANUARY-LIBRARY on our website when you check out! We hope these books will be as treasured to you as they are to us!

Have a great rest of the week!
Heart of Dakota
