Product Description
Dystopian Literature | Dystopian | Literature Circles

Dystopian literature is a popular genre with young adult readers. This engaging genre has motivated readers who were reluctant to pick up and enjoy a book. This unit capitalizes on the popularity of this genre while getting students in your class to read and enjoy a novel while using the literature circle method for comprehension, discussion, and structure.

This unit is designed with six current young adult novels. They range in reading level to help you tier the unit for your students, if necessary. The unit begins and ends with book trailers. At the beginning, they are used to grab student interest. At the end, they are created by students to illustrate comprehension through creativity and technology.

You'll receive:
A detailed unit plan with rationale and instructions, a comprehensive student packet for the literature circles, a student packet that clarifies common traits of dystopian literature, two short stories to supplement the unit, a PowerPoint with book trailers for all the books in the unit, student directions and expectations for their final book trailers, and a rubric to assess their final work.
