Product Description
In this whole-class novel study of Bettina Restrepo's "Illegal," students collaborate on a series of tasks that reinforce skills with analyzing main idea, author's purpose, symbolism, mood, characterization, prediction, and theme. The essential question that drives the unit is "What does it mean to be illegal?"

Tasks include
* annotation of two informational texts to compare the novel to (coyote smugglers in Texas; female gang bangers)
* graphic organizer to track how the main character Nora fights back against people who try to oppress her
* analysis chart of symbolic objects
* mood soundtrack (selecting songs to match the moods of key scenes)
* character foils chart
* character body biography

Also included in the unit:
* bellwork questions
* chapter summaries and discussion questions
* links to audio readings of chapters 28-47
* visuals to support key concepts

Final assessment is a character carousel based on Kholberg's Levels of Moral Development and a unit exam with evidence-based questions.
