This unit is designed to get every student engaged in the learning process. Students are out of their seats and stimulated while actively learning. There is a fantastic vocabulary activity that can be used with any text. The class gets hooked by a fun pre-reading activity which challenges the students to make creative plot predictions. The final project is a fantastic way to engage the visual learners and allow them to thrive by having the entire class create a crazy mural that captures the story through drawings and words. The text that I have attached to this unit is a short story found in the preface of a book called "Letting Go" by author Guy Finely. I am attracted to the meaning of the text and the author's purpose. It is a great lesson and it is rewarding to watch the students identify with it. However, the unit is adaptable to any text really and could also be used with other contents. Feel free to email me with any questions. Enjoy!
