Life of Pi - Google Classroom edition

INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:


➢ A test with thirty-one multiple-choice questions with answers and page numbers. The test is a separate PDF in the zip file.

➢ Some basic information on the Hero’s Journey.

➢ Story Plot Graph with eight points to be completed by the students. This is in the unit itself and a separate PDF in the zip file.

➢ Thirteen essay questions that require higher order thinking and critical reasoning. They vary as to difficulty - for instance, one question speaks of hope, fear, and trust and asks students to think of examples in their own lives while another question calls for a comparison between an expressed idea in LIFE OF PI to a line from MACBETH. These questions are in the unit itself and a separate PDF in the zip file.

➢There are three slides that introduce the novel in a fun and entertaining way.

• CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.2 Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.

• CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.3 Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.

THIS UNIT HAS BEEN ENTIRELY REDONE AND IS NO LONGER A COMBINATION OF THE OTHER THREE UNITS AS IT CONTAINS MUCH MORE THAN THE PREVIOUS UNIT

If you are interested in my unit on the film only please see the following:

LIFE OF PI HAS A LEXILE MEASURE OF 830 SO IT IS A GOOD CHOICE FOR GRADES 8 AND UP. ALL OF MY UNITS ON THE LIFE OF PI INCLUDE BASIC QUESTIONS (MULTIPLE-CHOICE) BUT THE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS ARE QUITE ADVANCED AND CHALLENGING SO THIS RESOURCE ALLOWS FOR DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING.
