Product Description
Columbine by Dave Cullen Literature Guide, Unit Plan, Nonfiction Novel, 4-5 week plan

Columbine, while a nonfiction, true-crime informational text by definition, reads like a novel with a narrative structure and complex organization pattern that grabs and challenges the reader from page one. Its narrative is one that certainly speaks to teens today, and this unit is the product of classroom experience and has been years in development.

This unit plan is designed to take your students through Columbine delicately as the subject matter can be difficult, while requiring students to study and dig into the text as critically as possilbe. From the modern connections provided such as a Tweet for Me summarizing exercise to the paired poetry that will allow you touch on the more complicated emotional themes, students will readily accept and enjoy this text. Various other interactive, hands-on, and creative activities will provide you with many ways to engage your students and have them take ownership of their own learning in this four to five week unit plan. All the basics are here, too: reading quizzes, grammar worksheets, journal prompts, vocabulary, research and final project prompts. You can use it all or just use some. This unit in its entirety touches every CCSS writing standard, many literature and info text standards, digital media standards for speaking and listening, and several language standards. Each resource is matched with its standards throughout the pack.

Included:
- active reading comprehension questions
- vocabulary lists, sentences, quizzes, answers
