    The connections look good!

    I would suggest adding more information about the authentic ways to engage in vocab. Add how they are authentic. The ABC chart is a little unclear of how it applies. Would students just add words to the chart? If so, that’s not authentic. Also, the wording for number two sounds awkward. Instead, how about “Students will play word jeopardy. This game can be created on a PowerPoint and used on the Smart Board to introduce the words.” I really like the creative short story idea. : )

    I also think we need to reword part of the unit plan introduction. It seems a little wordy. Maybe say “We, four students in the Western Illinois University English Education program, suggest The House of Tomorrow should be taught in an eleventh grade English course. The four week unit will focus on Young Adult Literature, technology, and character analysis.”
