If you are really interested in teaching Coming of Age on a whole new enthralling level please think about purchasing my Coming of Age Genre Unit Resource:
Coming of Age Unit Resource
This is not a formal lesson plan but rather a valuable and thought provoking planning resource that I have personally created and compiled to help teachers create meaningful lessons or unit plans on Coming of Age as a Literary Theme and Genre; however, some of the resources can act as mini-lessons. These universal resources will help you build upon what you already know as English teachers and help you open a doorway between the beloved Coming of Age classics (The Outsiders and The Lord of the Flies) of your youth and the modern tales students are much more familiar with (The Harry Potter and Hunger Games series).
