Product Description
This engaging and informative lesson helps students to understand one of the main recurring themes in Louis Sachar’s Holes: The effect of the past upon the present. Students study several of the flashbacks in Sachar’s non-linear narrative, and establish how different objects, ideas, and settings are evidence of the links between past and present at Camp Green Lake.

The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through:
- Reading and understanding the selected extracts to comprehend how past and present events are linked at Camp Green Lake;
- Exploring different objects and ideas, such as the spiced peaches and the treasure, to demonstrate how different sub-plots are interwoven;
- Using textual evidence to show a deeper understanding of the writer's purpose in linking the features of past and present together;
- Analysing how the effect of the past becomes an effective theme throughout the story;
- Peer assessing each other's learning attempts;

Included is:
- Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive;
- 'Text Detectives' worksheet - (PDF and Word versions);
- Selected extract - Chapter 7;
- Essay template for analytical paragraphs;
- Comprehensive lesson plan.

There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. I originally used these resources with year 7 and 8 classes, however colleagues have used them for between years 4 and 9 with minimal adaptations.
