This unit is for John Lewis' graphic novel MARCH (Book Three). It breaks the novel down into five sections. Each section includes a vocabulary activity, comprehension/analysis questions, and writing activity based on a related article/topic. There are also two mini-research projects about people and events from the Civil Rights movement.
The objective summaries are scaffolded. The students get templates on writing an objective summary paragraph and how to take notes when doing research.
There is also an article for a Socratic Seminar with directions and an easily printable version of an article Lewis wrote about forgiveness for the New York Times upon the death of George Wallace.
I used this in Google Classroom, so there are not extra spaces for student to write answers (they just typed right into the Google Doc). If you choose to use it as pencil/paper, you can simply add in spaces OR have students answer on their own papers and make a class set. Either way, it is easy to use and takes very little prep!
