This is a comprehensive 33-page literature unit on the award-winning book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. The unit was written by a reading specialist, and it incorporates higher-order thinking skills in addition to literal comprehension and vocabulary. The unit includes chapter summaries, vocabulary, predictions (to help the teacher stimulate conversation), worksheets, and critical thinking activities. It would be great for a literature circle or a class unit study. This is perfect for students in fifth and sixth grade. It would make a great summer unit, too. This unit was written by Alexandra Elliot.
