The short story, Eleven by Sandra Cisneros, is a beloved story used in many classrooms. This CCSS aligned mini-unit includes 2-3 days of standards based activities and discussion that is sure to engage and challenge your students.
This mini-unit includes:
- notes for the teacher
- standards alignment for grades 4 - 6
- author biography for background
- reading questions
- possible writing prompts
- reading questions answer key
**Please note that I do not include the short story itself due to copyright. The story is found in many literature anthologies and can also be found at several web sources.**
This is a perfect story to start the year off with due to its themes and school setting. However, I have used this story at different points in the year with different classes of students. I find it is one they really relate to!
