Product Description
This lesson plan for an independent novel assignment supports close reading, critical thinking and making connections to relevant social issues. The suggested list by American authors covers a range of interests and provides a variety of insights into the human condition. These books work best with high level readers in grades 10-12 but the activities can be adapted for other grades, levels, and reading lists.
The unit includes a list of reading log activities, a reading log assessment page, reproducible graphic organizers, an essay assignment with rubric, and a discussion test. The entire unit takes about 6 weeks, depending on the choice of activities and the reading level of the students.
