PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*This unit is part of a Genre, Theme, and Character Traits unit BUNDLE for upper grades*

**************************************

This unit includes everything you need to teach {and dig deeper!} genres in middle grades (4th-8th).

As an upper grade teacher, I often find that I assume my students have an understanding of literary information like genres. My 5th-8th graders tend to have a basic and simple understanding of things like genre, but I want them to really be able to analyze and dig deep into these concepts and that is the reason for these types of units.

This unit includes the following

Mini-lessons
Interactive notebook pages with examples
Common-core standard alignment
Teacher data collections sheets
Rubrics
Pre- assessments and post-assessments with all answer keys
Genre Chart papers and poster to hang in your classroom


In each lesson you will find the following format:

Title
Objectives
Common Core Standards for 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades
