The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau: The City of Ember Reader's Response Organizer is unique from others because it has daily responses for students to complete before, during, and after reading 1 or 2 chapters a day. Use it in guided reading, small groups, or independent study. The novel study is divided in half, and each section only uses 2 pieces of paper which are folded into an expandable organizer. (That's only 4 pieces of paper for each student to study the WHOLE BOOK!) Easy to print and simple to fold.
Complete 4-week book study with pacing guide and vocabulary. All reader tasks are aligned with Common Core and Marzano's Effective Teaching Instructional Strategies. Created by a Reading Specialist/ Classroom Teacher for easy, yet in-depth book study. All you need for a "true" novel study using comparing/contrasting, evaluating, descriptions, prediction, connections, and theme analysis and more.
The journey of Lina and Doon is a hero's journey with interesting characters and deep themes set under the ground as the children race to save Ember from darkness. Lesson plans are easy with this organizer/worksheets!
Look at my Close Reading non-fiction lesson that correlates to this novel about hydro-power. It will help students understand what Doon is trying to discover. It would also be perfect for a unit on electricity.
