Included in this 91 page bundle is everything I have created for a non-fiction / memoir unit I taught for several years using Ji Li Jiang's Red Scarf Girl.
At the start of the bundle I include my rationale and explanation regarding how the unit was created using UBD. There is also a Table of Contents, since the bundle is 91 pages.
To begin the unit, there are eight lesson plans where I use Dilly's Summer Camp Diary. The book is a great way to capture the interest of struggling readers. During these first eight lessons the class creates their own memoirs using Dilly's book as a guide.
After the first eight lessons, we dig into Red Scarf Girl. There are twenty-two lessons dedicated to Red Scarf Girl. My lessons include aims, great do-nows, instructional objectives, pivotal questions, and procedures. Each lesson plan is individually labeled (lesson 1, lesson 2... etc.).
After all of the lessons you will find all of the handouts and worksheets. Each handout and worksheet has the number of the corresponding lesson on its bottom right hand corner so that you don't have to search to find which printable goes with which lesson. There are 12 lessons which use printables and there are 53 handouts / worksheets in all. That sounds like a lot but it takes a lot of structure and support to build good readers.
Also of note, I used My Rotten Red-Headed Older Brother and one or two other texts to make comparisons with in the classroom. Please feel free to replace any titles that are not in your classroom library with ones that are. I decided to leave in the ones I used because they worked well and thought that, if you have them as well in your classroom, you might as well use them.
My students enjoyed this unit year after year, and I hope yours do as well.
