This 10 week unit of work celebrating diversity has been written for English students in Years 5-9. It is built on programming outcomes from the NSW English Syllabus: 2014. It integrates the higher order, creative use of Web 2.0 tools & iPad apps. It utilises selected picture books from the International Children's Digital Library at http://en.childrenslibrary.org to encourage multimodal responses from our diverse learners. It has an associated blog with a wide range of differentiated tasks at http://super6plus.edublogs.org. The big idea underlying the lessons is that together we are stronger, diversity enriches us all and that WELCOME is a wonderful word. There are many more reading, writing and Web 2.0 tasks on the net than you could ever do- so select your favourites from the range of tasks on offer here.
