Literacy Unit for Matilda by Roald Dahl. Written to take two weeks, but can be extended or condensed as needed. Includes short reading questions which can also be used as discussion questions; short writing assignment includes various prompts for a short essay. To be accompanied by the Literacy Unit Instructions and Literacy Unit Rubrics (free downloads).
Originally written as homeschool curricula (thus strongly student-independent), can be used for classroom as well.
