This standards-aligned TLA includes lesson plans and hands-on classroom activities. This rich content will be applicable to participants’ classroom and features resources for creating a full TLA unit. We will explore a TLA creation in detail, and participants will be exposed to teaching strategies to support implementation in the classroom. This TLA unit is a series of lessons that integrate subjects across the curriculum, such as math, reading, social studies, science, language arts, etc. that all tie into the central theme of the unit.
