The unit correlates to state standards and outcomes and the curriculum calendar provides over 30 hours of content material. Each session is accommodated with a full lesson plan, as well as the accompanying worksheets and keys. The narrative unit investigates the parables as literature, and provides historic critical and sociological background of the text. This unit is based on best practices in teaching and learning, and it is enriched by socratic circles, story-maps, role plays as well as relevant reading and writing assignments, and creative, productive projects.
