PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit is perfect for literature circles, book clubs or whole-class instruction. Divide the book into four sections, and go! Group activities provided along with mini lessons and independent practice. Wrap up the genre study with a debate, essay, group discussion, or group activity.

Use multiple times with any dystopian novel! Students can read different books, yet the whole class can participate in studying the genre.

There are four one-week sections that provide independent, paired, and group work along with whole-class discussion. A concluding assignment includes a student definition essay answering the question "What is a Hero?"
