A Middle School Lesson Plan for The Jericho River
We’ve posted our first lesson plan for middle school classes — related to The Jericho River! You can see it at our Resources for Teachers page. Just scroll down to “DESIGN A LUMIN LESSON PLAN … Middle School Version” (next to the blue-gold picture of Jason and Zidu).
The plan was written by Lisa Meyers, a retired history teacher. In the lesson, students create their own lumins: the history-based mythical creatures from The Jericho River. The lesson plan enhances and applies historical understanding of a past civilization. It supports Common Core State Standards ELA-Literacy RL 8.9 and ELA-Literacy W.7.9 in reading, writing, and research. And students practice key social studies and language arts skills.
The new plan supplements the three high school lessons we’ve already posted. I hope you find them all useful!
