This engaging novel, I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai, will really get your students thinking. It’s perfect to engage students in higher order thinking and discussion activities. This is also a great novel to teach the skill of using evidence from the text to support opinions. This unit can be used to teach the novel as an entire class, in literature circles or individually. I have NOT included lesson plans in this unit. How long it takes will really depend on how much reading students do outside of the classroom. I have included plenty of chapter questions and vocabulary assignments for even the most advanced classrooms. You may choose to shorten these if you want to finish in a quicker time frame. There are chapter questions for all 24 chapters. There are three sections of vocabulary along with activities. An answer key is included for all questions, vocabulary assignments, quizzes and the final test. I hope you enjoy this unit, I know my students did.
Please Note: This is for the original version of the novel, not the young reader's edition.
