    Jillian,
    You might take a look at Peter Smagorinsky's new book _Teaching English
    through Principled Practice_ (Merrill-Prentice Hall). He offers an
    extensive rationale for teaching thematic units, and the appendix contains
    several frameworks for sample units.

    >This is the first time I have used this program, and I am still not quite
    >sure if I am to post questions related to the videos we see, or any
    question
    >in general that we may have related to teaching. In any case, I hope I am
    >doing this right, and I will ask a question that I have in reference to
    >teaching Language Arts. We are currently putting together thematic units
    in
    >my English Instructional Analysis class at the University of Central
    Florida.
    > I would like to know if there are any extortionary success stories with
    >certain thematic units, and if so what were they? Also, were there any
    units
    >that did not work well with certain grades? Well, I hope this is ok to
    post.
    > If not, I am sure someone will e-mail and tell me otherwise.
