John Krakauer's Into the Wild is filled with interesting and challenging vocabulary. This unit contains a list of vocabulary words with definitions, a list-group-label lesson to familiarize students with the words, and a quiz.
The list-group-label lesson is an excellent way to teach students to "chunk" information so that they can recall it more easily on quizzes. The activity is both challenging and creative and can be adapted to fit vocabulary lists for other texts.
Lastly, an explanation about how to differentiate this lesson, and the modified worksheet needed to do so, are also included!
