PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is a lesson derived from the picture book, Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine and a Miracle. Students will answer questions and then they will pick out character traits of the main character to write about. A rubric is included to assess their writing.

This lesson was observed by administrators who loved it. The story is heartwarming and students have no problem writing about it.

This lesson was designed and created for my eighth grade special education language arts students one year when we were learning about military service dogs. This lesson works well with my novel unit on Cracker! The Best Dog in Vietnam (click link below).

There is a colored and blackline master version included. Choose which one best fits the needs of your classroom.
