Perfect for the end of the year! This layered curriculum novel unit is purposely made to fit any book you or your students may be reading. With a fun Mario theme, and nearly 50 activities, you could use this multiple times throughout the year. You will never need to look for novel unit ideas ever again. And best of all, kids will love having the choice to do the activities that they like.
I spent a lot of time researching layered curriculums and found a lot of ideas, but nothing that was fun and universal. This lesson will allow you to easily differentiate with several books of varying lexiles, without having to create multiple assignments. Simply assign your books, and decide how many points you want your students to accumulate from each level (levels broken down by Bloom's Revised Taxonomy).
Because of the new Common Core, I have also added an option for students to do modified literature circle discussions periodically throughout the unit.
