My students absolutely LOVE this book! I hope that your class will enjoy reading this book as much as mine does. It is definitely one of our favorites. As a teacher, I love it because it is perfect for teaching character traits and perspective and theme. It is also an excellence source for great discussions on making difficult decisions, being yourself, and accepting others.
This unit includes a character notebook for notes on the characters. The character notebooks also have a place for a short summary of each section. The second part of this unit is the response journal. This journal contains vocabulary and response questions for each section of the book (3-4 chapters each.) It also contains end of the book response questions and a writing prompt. These can all be put into a booklet form, or handed out after each section. The last part of the unit is the Cap Anderson Character Trait Map.

I'm just getting started on TPT after 19 years of teaching. Please check back often for more items to be loaded. I have a little bit of everything, but I specialize in book units, economics, and baseball themed items.
