I have to do a mini-unit lesson plan on fluency and I have no idea where to start. I also have to write an overview of the lesson plan. Can you please help me out with some ideas and examples?

Here's the assignment:

In fourth- to eighth-grade classrooms, there are great books that could become the basis for instruction in fluency reading.

Choose one book and provide the title, author, and a brief synopsis.

1. Create a 5-day mini-unit of study in which you unfold a plan for developing students' fluency.
2. Include at least five different activities and a minimum of one end of unit assessment within your 5-day unit.
3. Recommended lesson plan templates would include SIOP, EEI and UBD, located within the Student Success Center.

Concurrently, provide a brief overview of your mini-unit. This should be 500-750 words in length and summarize the major theme of the unit.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide.
