This is a 36-page comprehensive unit plan for Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye. Using a backwards design (UBD) model, essential questions, enduring understandings, and all content and skills are included (with a primary focus on Common Core Standards for reading, writing, language, and speaking/listening). Each day of the 6-week unit is outlined in a detailed sequence. All weekly graphic organizers are included--which primarily assess students' comprehension--and use of reading skills (i.e. summarize, cite and analyze evidence). The unit also includes formative and summative assessments (i.e. a final literary essay and creative narrative piece on a social justice issue).
