Tired of standardized quizzes and tests? Yes, students need such practice, but those kinds of materials are easy to find. Using the Prezi and worksheets included in this unit will certainly be more creative and engaging. This unit includes an unusual Prezi and various worksheets.
PREZI - This is not your typical Prezi. It has 24+ pages with various info, maps, pictures, videos (20 total), and writing activities for the first 70 pages of the novel to give students background information and pictures/videos of various sea plants and creatures mentioned, fishing items and activities, and other allusions. The slides are numbered to the corresponding page referenced in the novella published by Scribner. Therefore, as you are reading the novel with the class, you can zoom in to the page you are covering. The total presentation is 71 slides, but of course you won't be showing them all at once.

For the projects each student will write an essay and create several thoughtful, literary scrapbook pages. Many different options are listed from which students can choose. This can make a nice portfolio of English skills.
