REVISED! 5th edition is now 152 pages! This bundled edition includes many new activities (such as Literary Genre Card Games) and significant revisions to format, graphics, and activities. It also includes several packets sold separately: Book Discussion Groups, Advertising Your Novel, Character Acrostics, and Literary Genre Card Games.
This comprehensive literature unit is the perfect way to differentiate learning in a novel study! Students CHOOSE their own novels and participate in reading, discussions, and creative activities. The unit includes complete lesson plans and planning guides for the teacher as well as colorful handouts, Book Discussion Groups, a Student Learning Contract, and a Unit Evaluation Rubric used as a self-evaluation by students and a final evaluation by the teacher.
Students complete a series of required activities, including Reading Logs, and 1-sentence Chapter Summaries. They also have CHOICE Activities, and they do a final Class Presentation (most students choose PowerPoint presentations).
Capture student attention at critical times of the year and, when students do their class presentations, give students the advantage of learning about many more novels they may want to read! The unit includes directions and materials for several activities that are also sold separately (Book Discussion Groups, Advertising Your Novel, Character Acrostics, and Literary Genre Card Games). It also includes the Literary Genres crossword puzzle with key (sold separately). A PowerPoint Show introducing literary genres is also available in my store (Literary Genres PowerPoint Show—An Introduction).
You will want to teach this unit EVERY year!
