This collection of materials includes:
*A Pacing Guide: Please be aware that this was used with advanced 6th grade readers (average IRL gr. 11) and questions were not assigned as homework but as a basis for class discussion. Adjust and/or change dates as needed for the needs of your group.
*Reading Assignments: Students in my group were allowed class reading time. We also read aloud on some days. If your group of readers needs more time, stretch out the time or double the days needed for each section. Or, assign just one chapter at a time.
*Discussion Questions: I found these online and adjusted and enhanced them to fit my group. These can be used as a whole class, on a blog site, for tests or for individual assignments. I printed them as a study/reading guide that students kept while reading and during discussion. Specific answers will vary and a key is not included.
*Constructive Projects: These can be used in small groups or as individual end-of-novel projects, for bonus or optional work. They may also be used as project based assessment
*Vocabulary A SHORT list w/definitions and an online site for practice. Use for study, sentence writing or flashcards
*Author Biography short bio on author Veronica Roth from Wikipedia (non-copyrighted)
*Common Core Standards covered within the materials
*Movie Information & Movie review assignment (AWV: no key) The March 7, 2014 edition of Entertainment Weekly had a great article/review in it as well. Not included as it’s copyrighted.
When teaching this novel, I also used a mock Facebook project modified from a purchase from TpT…it was within a unit for the Hunger Games.
The materials supplied for purchase here are not meant to replace teaching strategies or entire portions of curriculum. I spent weeks putting this together, typing up handouts and questions, developing and tweaking formats and making it suitable for the needs and levels of my students. It will work best for you/your students if you adjust it to fit what their needs are as well. I have therefore loaded the materials in Word format for ease of editing and adjustment.
I hope you find that this saves you some time…as teachers, it is the one thing we are most in need of!
Finally, please note that this document was formatted in WORD 2010 and uploaded to enable purchasers to edit. Formatting may vary from computer to computer or edition of Word that you are using. (For example, while I have aligned pages, yours may not print that way...)
