Four complete sets of supplemental texts to support the novel study of “The Watsons Go To Birmingham-1963” , "The Giver", "Maniac Magee", and "Trouble Don't Last".
These texts are a great way to add meaningful and thoughtful discussion to your class by exploring topics and themes present in the novel through close reading or text study.
I used these text sets with my students in sixth grade and read one a week as part of our close reading block. The four units took us through the year (save for the month of testing). Please reach out if you'd like more info on how they were used in our classroom!
