Thematic Units for the Secondary Classroom:  Content and Skills Connect
edited by Jill Adams

The similarities between a spider web and thematic units can be striking.  Thematic units take a great deal of time to plan -- looking at standards/goals, objectives, tests, activities, and the pivotal center of the web, the theme; it works to connect all to these items together in a useful, powerful manner.  Additionally, the stickiness of the unit connects the content and skills of the lessons so they remain with students long after the lesson is over.  This book contains 9 units that are ready for classroom use.
