I love this unit! I have many reading checks (lower order thinking) and three higher order thinking quizzes. These focus on lesson objectives like: humor, characterization, and using textual evidence. Also includes a unit syllabus.
There are two options for project assessments--one is differentiated with many options, and the other is a more extensive artistic project that does not neglect the importance of using text evidence and interpreting passages.
There is emphasis on humor and tone in this unit. Highly engaging and great year-starter.
