Chris Van Allsburg Author Study
Get your students excited about reading in a whole new way! Expose your students to an in depth study of Chris Van Allsburg's fantasy genre. This is a 13 day unit with an end-of-unit extension activity.
The unit includes everything you need to teach the unit such as a Unit Over-view (easy to follow, detailed lesson plans for each day), 23 pages in student activities to go along with each day's lesson, and an end-on-unit project choice board where students choose 3 projects to complete in response to the unit.
Throughout the unit, students will be listening to Van Allsburg stories during read alouds as well as reading them in small groups, discussing theme, character development, point of view, setting, the genre of fantasy and much more!
You will also find 35 anchor slides to help teach each lesson.
These anchor slides are provided in SMARTBoard, PowerPoint, PDF, and PNG image files.
As an extra bonus, there is a 33 piece, full colored bulletin board set
to use throughout the unit as you learn new concepts and read Van Allsburg books.
