This complete unit for Fever 1793 includes Focus Questions for every chapter, grouped in sets of two or three chapters each. No answer keys provided for these questions.
The novel is introduced with three board pages discussing yellow fever and some of its occurrences in the 18th and 19th C.
These Novel Unit pages are high quality, attractive to students, and student tested. Students must use their own paper for written answers except for some charts that I include.
There is a three page novel test WITH ANSWER KEY.
Teacher instructions and suggestions are included as is a puzzle for vocabulary and for names in the novel. The unit is "ready to go!"
There are essay/discussion questions for after the novel has been read, with suggestions for responses.
There is a one page poetry connection worksheet (see CCSS RL9) for students to interpret a poem and write their own version as it applies to the protagonist of FEVER 1793.
An Imagery group project is included, usable for an introduction to the novel, plus teacher suggestions.
As I was working on comparatives, a two page lesson for that is here also, using sentences from the novel.
