PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Glory Field | Glory Field Unit | Glory Field Resources

Since The Glory Field, by Walter Dean Meyers, is historical fiction, this unit plan focuses partially on the history behind each section of the novel. The second focus of the unit plan is on writing as the primary means of student assessment. Student comprehension is shown through both creative and academic writing prompts.

The activities for each section of the novel begin with historical discovery and end with two writing pieces. One goal of the unit is for students to understand that the stories of Lewis family, although fictional, are representative of the experiences of thousands of African Americans who lived during the same time periods.

Students conclude the novel unit with an exploration of their own family history via a genealogy project that shows where their family fits in to history. Guided journal activities for each section are included for students as well.

You'll receive:
An overview of the unit with rationale and instructions, a complete unit plan with daily activities, electronic copies of all supplemental materials used with the plan, student handouts for replication, and the final culminating project.
