PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit consists of 36 words divided into three sets of 12, covering the entire book. The unit includes a list of all 36 words and definitions as well as one list for each set individually, including the page numbers and actual sentences from which the words were taken.

I've provided six "lessons" for each set and have included explanations of each of these lessons in the unit:

Word Sorts - used to introduce the words

Categorizing Tasks - a Think-Pair-Share activity to provide practice

Vocabulary Activities, Practice, and Review Exercises - a combination of exercises (different for each unit) for independent practice, bellwork, re-teaching, or assessment

Summary Statements - links the vocabulary back to the novel

I have also included answer keys for the activities.

NOTE: This unit does NOT include quizzes or tests because I prefer to assess my students' understanding of vocabulary through writing assignments. You're welcome to cut/paste the activities together to create a quiz--there's more than enough material here.

Please download the preview to see a list of all 36 words and read more information about the activities included in the unit.

This vocabulary unit is the first of a set I plan to publish on Copper Sun (see the thumbnails and preview for more information).

Check out my Copper Sun Discussion Questions. This Word document contains 77 questions you can use to guide discussion or as reading checks for each chapter of the novel.

I've also posted a web-based background-building activity about The Middle Passage (to accompany Chapters 7 - 10 of Copper Sun). Click here to check out this FREE excerpt of a collection of Before, During, and After reading activities to be published in August 2015.

Please follow me on TpT if you wish to be alerted when I post the other components of the novel unit. I hope you find these materials useful and will post feedback on TpT to let me know how they work out in your classroom.

Thank you for your interest in my work!
