This unit plan includes quizzes, culminating activities, projects, and assessments for the novel Iqbal by Francesco D'Adamo. No fancy graphics here, just tried and true questions that I have used with my special education seventh grade students! Includes selected and constructed response style questions. This plan will meet Common Core English Language Arts standards and requires students to support their answers with textual evidence. Particularly for constructed response questions, I have found that it is important for students to create their own answer keys in order to understand that there can be many correct answers as long as they are supported by the text. I have included one answer key (for Chapter 1). This plan will help you and your students analyze and enjoy this well-written, weighty novel as well as research current events and relate them to the events in the book.
