This is a complete CCSS unit on the novel Hoot by Carl Hiassen. It includes a 69 slide power point and 22 additional comprehension or application activities that support the power point. Comprehension activities are based on Blooms Taxonomy and Webb's Depth of Knowledge with high level questions that mirror PARCC standards and writing requirements. Students read the novel while exploring through the reading literature common core standards. Throughout the novel students work in literature circles where they are assigned the jobs of word wiz, connector, grand inquisitor, & summarizer. Half way through the novel students explore the idea of multiple accounts by connecting the Realistic Fiction Novel Hoot to 3 informational texts on Burrowing Owls and why they are endangered. All items are able to be uploaded to chrome or google classroom and are modifiable by the teacher! I purposefully do not create my documents in adobe because I do not feel they support the 21st century classroom.
