In this unit, students will work together to understand and enjoy The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Students will think about what they read, write responses to this novel in their discussion logs, and will discuss their ideas in small groups with other students. In this process, students will identify themes, analyze vocabulary, and recognize writing techniques. This unit provides the teacher with the organizational structure to form literature circles in a middle school classroom for any novel. Along with teacher directions for seven to nine fifty-five minute lessons, it includes the following:
