Description

Come with Alice and the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole! Experience Wonderland.

This is a guide to a close reading of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. It's a classic written in 1865 chronicling Alice's adventures as she chases a Rabbit down a rabbit hole. You may have seen the movies but you need to read the book!

Close reading will be an integral part of teaching with the Common Core. Students need to know how to be analytic when reading texts and poems. I have outlined the components of authentic literacy and what it looks like in the classroom. I formatted the unit as follows. It begins with an explanation of close reading and how to format a lesson. Then, there is a story summary, themes listed and character descriptions. After that, I created focus questions for each chapter. There are explicit gradual release formatted lessons sprinkled throughout. I included a close reading sheet for each of the explicit lessons. You could use the focus questions to create more close reading lessons using the blank templates or for class discussions. At the end, there is a blank sheet for planning and to use with close reading of different chapters. I hope your students enjoy it as much as my students did. This isn't a bunch of worksheets as I don't teach that way. This is for going deep with the literature!

Betheny W. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I used this as an additional resource to our novel study. Well done!! My students loved how everything was written, because of this they didn't mind looking for text evidence, this standard has been hard to teach this year!

Ashlie S. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is an amazing resource! I teach high school special education, and this unit fits the needs of my students to a T. I appreciate the guided reading passages, and the inquiry it provides for students. This unit requires very little preparation, and is easily differentiated. I love the guided reading notes for the teacher--this is something I struggle with, and these lesson notes made this process very easy. My students are loving the text, which is a miracle as it is very complex and they are very low level learners. Well done!

Susan F. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
