Product Description

Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markandaya is one of my favorite novels, and my students are always stretched by this novel study. I teach 12th Grade, and in general, I try to make books challenging and relevant by engaging in high-level, inquiry-style questions that guide our reading. Thematically, I always tend to focus on the book's power to evoke empathy on behalf of its characters, as they struggle against poverty, hunger, and various forms of injustice.

In terms of nuts-and-bolts, I've actually taught this book using a few different overall approaches: 1.) a traditional inquiry/analysis-style approach in my World Literature class, 2.) a skills-focused approach in my AP English Literature class, and 3.) a more project-based, student-directed approach using extended student presentations. This document actually includes every resource that I've used for all three of these approaches, so it's basically a 3-in-1 unit plan! (See the Preview for more details)

You will find in this document 11 pages of plans mapped out chapter-by-chapter, which INCLUDE in total:

- About 40 lesson ideas (i.e., activities, projects, debates, research, essays)

- 25 links to complementary resources (i.e., movie clips and quality webpages)

- Over 50 quality discussion questions

You will also find INCLUDED in the appendices:

- Reading comprehension questions (AND answers) for every chapter (sold separately here)

- 3 multiple-choice reading quizzes

- 22 additional pages of printable handouts that correspond to my lesson ideas*
