This product is aligned to the 7th and 8th grade CCSS informational reading standards.

This unit is exactly what you need to teach your 7th and 8th grade learners in an engaging and thought-provoking format with Linda Sue Parks inspiring novel, A Long Walk to Water.

This unit digs deep into EVERY SINGLE common core literature reading and main writing standard.

As educators, we don’t want to just “hit” the standards, we want to dig deep into every single standard and we want them all to come together into one cohesive and beautiful piece of work. Sometimes it is hard to produce lessons like this all.the.time.

This unit teaches your students about every single seventh and eighth grade literature standard in an engaging, though-provoking, and fun unit and all the work is done for you.

I was introduced to the “Socratic Seminar” and I fell in love after I saw this method in practice, and I think you will too! You can use these lessons as your reading lessons to teach (and dig deep) into every single CCSS reading literature standard for seventh and eighth grade.

I still do interactive note booking, Language Arts instruction, and literature circles, in my classroom, so I know this can work with any type of reading program that you already have in place. These could even be used as a class novel study for read aloud.

In this unit, your students will get tons of support and conversations from their peers, will be exposed to literature and vocabulary at or above their grade level, and become part of a reading community. Yet it still gives you the flexibility to work with groups of students at their particular reading levels. I’m telling you, it’s a game changer.

In this unit you will find:
1. Using this resource in your classroom
2. The Socratic Seminar: research base and strategy in practice
3. Teaching vocabulary with novel studies
4. Different reading workshop set-ups
5. Reading response notebook examples from my classroom
6. Common Core standard alignment
7. 11 Lesson plans
