PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you need something fast, here is a complete short story unit. I intend for it to be especially useful to substitutes if you get caught short of a lesson plan.

“Joaquin’s Gold” is a western adventure set in 19th Century California. Its main character is Joaquin Murrieta, the famous bandit. It’s based on Central California legends and is set in Pinnacles National Park. Here’s a link to the published story on the Writer’s Drawer website:

Please feel free to download a free copy of the story here on TPT and print out as many copies as you like. Here’s the link:

I've included CLOZE and reciprocal teaching comprehension activities, a poster assignment, a listening log, a post test and a puzzle. This unit should be good for several days of work in a middle school language arts class.
