  1. I like the interdisciplinary nature of your assignment. The ELA levels have put in a tremendous amount of work this summer making the concepts and skills students should know and be able to do explicit based on STAAR standards. It might be a good idea to have some conversations-that-lead-to-action(whether formal or informal) about others ways the two disciplines can support each other. I think your idea is a great example of one way to do this.
