Why I use the DK books: These biographies are by far the most enjoyable, told in an honest and interesting way, while remaining comprehensive. They are perfect for Language Arts students who need to add non-fiction or biography to their reading list. For social studies, they can be used as additional reading. For example, if you are a social studies teacher working on an India unit, this book is the ideal supplement to your lesson plan. The best thing about these biographies is that they are great for almost any age, depending on how the book is used. I have even found them beneficial while working with autistic students.

I have been using DK books for over ten years. Students like them for the layout and the photographs, as well as the short but detailed chapters.

Whether for ELA or SS, or for bridge work in the summertime, the reading can go fast or slow, depending on students’ ages and needs. The lesson-plan calendar is up to you!

Be sure to be on the lookout for more of my DK biography lesson plans. I will be uploading them periodically.

Included in this packet (31 pages total):
Chapter-by-chapter fill-in-the-blank worksheets
Vocabulary (26 words, grades 5-9, easy to modify)
Research activities sheet (which can be used at any point during the reading)
Vocabulary test (matching)
Two chapter tests (chaps 1-5 and 6-11, multiple choice)
*Book final test (essay prompts)
All answer keys

*You may use the two tests combined as an end-of-book comprehensive test, or use one of the research activities in lieu of a test. I personally prefer an essay as a final test in order to prompt critical thinking and writing skills. Feel free to implement however you wish.

I hope you love this DK book as much as I do and that your students find Gandhi to be an inspiration!
