Using literature to integrate subjects through thematic instruction has become an effective methodology in the classroom. This section contains a mini-literature unit that correlates to the on-line literature book A New Regime found at the NASA Quest Web site given below.
These are meant to motivate students to ``get into'' the literature. The ``Through'' section contains reading comprehension questions with answers, a sequencing activity and an exploration of figurative language. These are intended to move students through the literature reading. The ``Beyond'' section offers writing experiences, oral language activities and a visual design activity. ``Beyond'' activities are meant to encourage the students to further explore the topic of Captain Yeager and the historic supersonic flight.
These materials do correlate to the National Standards for English/Language Arts and Reading.
