Product Description
Night Google Earth is a high-engagement way to give an Introduction Tour of the geography of the novel's world. The first time I busted out Google Earth on the projector to introduce a unit, students were riveted. And they still are...every time.

* We've filmed a YouTube video tutorial to acquaint you with the software.

What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

♥ Thank you for making this product. The images and graphics are great, which helps to keep the students more engaged. The best part for me, hands down, are your quick write questions. They are very thoughtful, and will work great for helping my students connect with the novel.

♥ Love, love, love this! I just used the introduction powerpoint on Friday, and my kids were blown away by the content, and I was blown away by the detail! The presentations are creative and relevant, but the vocabulary was my selling point! Thank you for all the hard work you put into this unit; it's going to bring this memoir to many a student everywhere!

♥ I have a special education class and the graphic organizers and video links were very helpful.

♥ Really terrific product. Offers multiple approaches to lesson planning that kept my English IV students engaged. Thanks especially for the background information on WWII and the Holocaust.

♥ I have other teaching guides, but this one added a fresh approach to teaching the novel. Figurative language, daily journal quickwrites, the PPT... all great! Thank you.

♥ The PowerPoint designed to introduce students to the historical context and author information is particularly helpful! I also really appreciated the PowerPoint for figurative language. I can use that information in my other English courses.

* NOTE: If you've already purchased our other version of this for non-digital classrooms, you've likely already figured out how to use this in your 1:1 classroom, so there is no need to get this. If you don't have either version yet and you're working with digital 1:1 learners, then get this version. It has instructions that are more useful for your journey of getting started.
