Product Description
The following unit of study immerses students into the world presented to us by Mark Twain in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. This unit guides them through the steamboat era on the Mississippi with an exploratory web scavenger hunt, and then prompts them to think about the themes Twain wanted to convey in his book. Students will analyze characters and come to see how they contribute to the themes, and they will practice imitating the Southern dialect Twain captures so well. They will then research, write, prepare, and perform their own Tom Sawyer puppet show.

This unit is designed for a middle school class, and while its main content area is English, it also incorporates some elements of social studies, art, and drama. It includes 10 lesson plans, each of which takes about 2 class periods to complete - you can stretch them out or shorten them, though, as necessary. I love making really detailed lesson plans, so each one not only includes a bellwork assignment and a script of what to say, it also notes which levels of Bloom's Taxonomy and which of Gardner's Intelligences are being appealed to. I think a sub could even follow these plans without too much of a problem!
