After witnessing the murder of Professor Oliver Crowley, who has invented a way of bringing thoughts into physical reality, Fitz Faraday and his friends must exonerate the town bully, who is being framed for the murder. Using Professor Crowley's inventions, Fitz soon learns he can bend the field of Id, a sea of golden dreams and wishes. Fitz finds himself drawn inside a new world he never knew existed. He hopes he will be able to use that world to help his friends and even his enemies. To do so, he must master Crowley's technique of "Thought becomes light and light becomes physical."
A twelve-lesson Literacy Study complete with Common Core standards, "I can..." statements, resources, handouts, graphic organizers, assessments, rubrics, supplemental readings and more!
The Literacy Study uses a Compare and Contrast structure, using The Marvelous Paracosm of Fitz Faraday and the Shapers of the Id (novel by Aaron J. Lawler) and compares this to Mark Twain's Adventures of Tom Sawyer, as well as a number of nonfiction articles in social studies and science.
