"Zathura" is part of our reading series, and I own the "Mysteries of Harris Burdick" which i have used for years. I was hoping it would have more for "Harris Burdick" since some of my students have trouble with the creative writing assignment. I think this may spark some ideas for me to create some more activities.

I purchased your Chris VanAllsburg Author Study- it's great! In the description, you said you included lesson plans- are these the pages where you wrote a summary after each book title, or is there something else I didn't see? I am trying to figure out a sequence and pacing that will work with my schedule and was hoping to see how long you took for each lesson, and how many days you spent on each book.
Thank you so much in advance for your help!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 25, 2012One Extra Degree answered:
Hi! The lesson plans are included. They aren't extremely detailed as far as pacing and sequence goes, to be honest. They are written more as a narrative with photographs. You can access them in the files called "Chris Van Allsburg Author Study Ideas" and "Chris Van Allsburg Lessons". The lessons were the summaries. I wrote specific steps for each lesson through the narrative descriptions. These were straight from my lesson plan book. I hope that helps!
