Joey is certain that he is wired wrong. He feels himself losing control but is not in a position to stop the wild ride. JOEY PIGZA SWALLOWED THE KEY is a National Book Award finalist in which author Jack Gantos puts ADHD into perspective by telling the story from the fifth grader's perspective. If you have ever wondered what it is like to have ADHD, this book gives you a peak into the thoughts of a child experiencing it first-hand. While reading this book, students learn that not all behaviors exhibited by children with ADHD are conscious choices and that tolerance and patience can go a long way. This full unit includes a day-by-day calendar, social skills for literature circles, literature circle checklists (for the teacher), journal entries, project choices and rubric, novel summary worksheet, 20-question exam, peer evaluation, and self evaluation.
