When I taught the novel A Single Shard, by Linda Sue Park, my students helped one another analyze the vocabulary terms by presenting them to the class. Students enjoyed searching for the information and identifying with each term; the assignment made these terms accessible and relevant, on a middle school-level.
TIP: This assignment is differentiated for pupils that are considered Above-Level, At-Level, and Below-Level. The page with a triangle at the bottom is for Above- and At-Level. The page with the circle at the bottom is for Below-Level.
NOTE: You can purchase this as an individual assignment, or you can buy my "A Single Shard Mini-Unit," which also includes a Webquest, at a DISCOUNTED PRICE!
