I use this web-based activity to build background knowledge for Chapters 7 - 10 of Copper Sun
by Sharon Draper. Students review a slide show of images from Tom Feelings's The Middle Passage
, read the accompanying text, and answer nine questions about The Middle Passage.
This is one piece of a larger collection of "Before, During, and After Reading Activities" I am putting together for publication on TpT in August 2015. Follow me (by clicking on the green star under my name, above right) to receive an email when the entire collection of lessons is posted.
If you are preparing to teach Copper Sun, you should also check out my Copper Sun Vocabulary Unit
and Copper Sun Discussion Questions
, both currently available on TpT!
