PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are an innovative teacher who likes to tap into the Multiple Intelligences and deepen your students comprehension in authentic ways, then this is the novel study for you! The Skin I'm In novel by Sharon Flake is a favorite for middle school students. This 41 page novel study has frontloading activities that address bullying and includes before, during, and after reading activities. There are no traditional work sheets; instead authentic responses are elicited from students while the Multiple Intelligences are included throughout. Strong comprehension strategies, such as the Hot Seat from Jeffrey D. Wilhelm, are used to deepen comprehension. Writing activities in the forms of journals, character letters, and a mirror poem are part of the comprehension activities. Every strategy in this unit is research and experienced based. Your students will enjoy this book and have fun learningl This was one of the novel studies I used successfully for my National Boards.

On  April 16, 2013Elizabeth Harper Allen answered:
Thank you! I've modified the culminating activity. If time runs out have each group share a summary of their book. Then have them share the answers they came up with to the essential questions.

Another activity is to have the students write a test for the book.

Hope that is helpful! If you have time let me know how it goes and what modifications you would suggest.
