Product Description

If you teach early United States history and you do it (or would like to) through the novel, Blood on the River James Town 1607, then this resource is for you!

Blood on the River James Town 1607 is a novel with a Lexile level of 820. This historical fiction book teaches readers about the challenges explorers and colonists faced while traversing the wide open ocean, settling in new parts of the world, and interacting with different cultures. The author, Eliza Carbone, goes further by teaching the reader about the European class structure and how it changed in the development of the colonies. She uses great imagery, and gives teachers the opportunity to teach figurative language, character development/change, and theme. Boys, girls, and teachers always love this book.

The Book Club Study Resource

This resource was created to help teachers supplement their U.S. history and English Language Arts studies in an engaging way. This resource was created to help teachers implement the book club smoothly with simple procedural slides to keep the flow going. If you don't purchase the blackline masters these slides won't be as useful (see link below).

This portion includes:

* Opening class discussion questions

* Step-by-step guidance on how to use tableau in this context

* Effective discussion prompt sentence starters

* Enduring understandings and essential questions

* Text-Dependent questions

* Daily homework reminders

* Daily reflective journaling opportunities

* Agenda for the day's lesson

* Formative assessment "final thought" questions

When you purchase and download you will find the Google Slides URL. I suggest you make a copy of the slides and adapt it to your teaching needs. You will always have access to the upgrades on the original slides.

To be able to use this resource fully you will need to purchase the backline masters, which includes the quizzes, homework, text-dependent questions, and answers. This slide resource gives the procedure for teaching WITH this components.
