This is a comprehensive workbook for the students to use in lieu of or in addition to their notebooks during the reading of Fences. It includes Aims (objectives), Do-Now Questions (motivations), critical and plot questions (development) as well as character analysis. There are also sections for students to work together as groups and the text is an integral part of this workbook. There are reference pages so that students must complete "close readings" of the text. The teacher who buys this unit has to do very little except for actually read Fences and perhaps come up with a few homework assignments and vocabulary words. Many hours of work went into this and you will use it for years and years. The workbook can also be used to gauge student progress and can be collected and graded during or at the end of the unit.
