PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 33-page packet includes detailed teaching plans (with numerous urls to enhance your lessons) and 14 handouts. All of the handouts and teaching ideas are aligned with the Common Core Standards. I also include a sample daily lesson guide, more essay topics and a good deal of expository and creative writing activities (ten short answer questions, ten essay topics and six projects) that will hook students' interest, engage their thinking and increase their writing skills.

You can buy a separate ITW PowerPoint presentation on this site. Buyers can purchase this whole unit, or may buy the openers and test separately.

Great unit. This really helped me teach the book.
On  September 16, 2013Connie answered:
Terrific! Students always love this book. I created this unit to help them understand the characters, conflicts and issues in depth. I am thrilled that you found it to be useful, also. If you are ever interested, I made a correlating PowerPoint that teachers could use with the study of the book.

Excellent unit. I downloaded for a long-term sub and was able to provide support to this non-English teacher with this unit, she was able to sound like a prepared teacher and it saved me a ton of time.
On  February 14, 2012Connie answered:
Terrific! Thank you for the kudos. I sell a PowerPoint that coincides with this unit, too. I'm happy that the unit saved you time and stress while you were on leave. Thank you fou buying it.

On  July 5, 2011Kerri Bury (TpT Seller) said:
Incredibly thorough and modifiable . . . could be taught/studied in its entirety or could be used for shorter units. Since "Common Core" has suggested that secondary English will begin to focus more on non-fiction, I believe this is an excellent, contemporary novel to consider, and Constance has clearly put a great deal of thought and effort into this unit. Great buy at $5!
On  July 5, 2011Connie answered:
Thank you for your praise, Kerri. My revisions have made this product quite thorough, and, I think, allow for a great deal of student thinking, from comprehension to analysis to synthesis. The PowerPoint that corresponds with it has also been tweaked for viewing clarity. Now. I'd just love to see that pre-revised rating rise. Some of my literature units have already been revised to coincide with the Common Core principles. By the end of July, all of them will show the quality of ITW.

Saved me a ton of time. The quality and time put into this lesson was obvious. I am excited and beyond pleased I bought this item The power point is worth while as well.
On  January 28, 2011Connie answered:
Thank you so much for your positive words. I knew that my revisions made it a strong product and am happy that it works well for you. All of my units are standards-based, offer specific teaching ideas, day-by-day plans, handouts and assessments, which I hope is what teachers want and what will motivate students to be life-long learners. This method has worked for me for 30 years, always garnering me an Exemplary rating during my evaluations. If you ever have any suggestions for my units, please let me know. I want all of my products to be worthwhile to my fellow educators.

On  November 4, 2009,  Buyer said:
Comments like "show powerpoint" as one of the activities...it would be helpful to have some kind of guidance as to what "the powerpoint" would look like or even better to have a powerpoint available. I like the ideas put forth in this unit plan ~ but it would have been nice to have been able to download the 'meat' as well.
On  April 12, 2010Connie answered:
Thank you for your positive comments about the plan. Regarding the PowerPoint, I always wrestle with selling it with the unit (which would mean a hhigher cost for the buyer)or keeping them both as separate entities. Some teachers want just the unit, some the PowerPoint and others both. Maybe including a couple of the slides with the unit plan would satisfy all of the preferences.
