The Robots Return - Design

Unit Design

The integration of ELA and STEM is done differently in the high school unit. ELA skills continue to be embedded in the robotics lessons but they are also developed extensively in related science fiction literature units. This design allows ELA teachers to connect to the “Robot Invasion” theme without sacrificing time needed to work on literature specific standards. When skills are connected across curricula areas, learning makes more sense to students. They see a purpose for what they’re learning and they gain a deeper understanding of content material.

This design also gives teachers more flexibility. The robotics unit can be taught alone if there isn’t an ELA teacher who wants to teach the science fiction unit. Teachers may also select specific lessons from literature and robotics and combine them to build an integrated unit that meets their needs.
