Regions of the United States Review

There are some good materials in this unit from a creativity and high interest standpoint. You need to begin by looking at how the authors divided up the regions as they include WA, OR, & CA as part of the West Region instead of the Pacific Region. If the divisions of the regions aren't going to be an issue, You need to be aware that some false information is included in some of the text, such as Chicago being the capital of Illinois, which it is not. Springfield is the capital of Illinois.There are several spelling errors in which the authors used the wrong form of the word "there", used "are" instead of "our", so as a professional I would not copy any of the material to send home with my students.

Highly concerned about modeling accurately the objectives we teach
