Product/Materials Preface [Grades 5-12]

I have provided over 220+ pages (I've recently added 80+ pages of additional materials) of enthralling and visually stimulating mini lessons, graphic organizers, writing templates, tri-folds, quizzes, and much more. This is absolutely the best resource to help support any unit on Coming of Age in literature and film. This product offers high order thinking concepts and philosophies so that your students will become immerse in the literary genre.

This resource will inspire students to embrace literature in new ways. The scaffolded style and techniques of the resources will help make them more comfortable with responding to literature. The driving visuals for this unit are a DNA Helix and a Butterfly because they represent adaptation and transformation.

There are multiple entry points for students to begin to interpret, analyze, and evaluate both classic and modern coming of age stories in literature and film. My product touches base on a wide range of literary elements, skills, and techniques. The organizers range for simple to complex and lay the foundation for your students to become engrossed in challenging literature. The elements include: genre conventions, narrative voice, character types, roles, and traits, setting, plot, internal and external conflict, symbolism and motif, dualisms, irony, and universal theme.

All of my graphic organizers are strikingly original. Use the graphic organizers with any coming of age story including picture books, chapter books, short stories, novels, films, plays, etc. You can most of the templates for centers, independent reading, guided reading, literature circles, books clubs, group work, homework, assessments—you are only limited by your imagination!
