This is a resource for teachers doing a book club unit on the book "Out of the Dust" by Karen Hesse. This unit includes theme questions and lessons that incorporate book club curricular areas such as comprehension, literary aspects, composition, and language conventions. There are five lessons developed in detail. Just because there are five lessons does not mean this unit will last five days. It could easily take a month to get through with your class. This is because each lesson includes a lesson on reading, writing, open/closing community share, and book club meeting lessons. Lessons also include objectives, vocabulary, assigned reading, and writing prompts.
Feel free to adapt any lessons, activities, prompts, and assessments to your own curriculum. Again, here is a summary of what is included in this product:
•Read aloud (supplemental texts)
•Curriculum areas: comprehension, literary aspects, composition, language conventions
•Lesson framework: reading, writing, community share, book club discussions
•Lesson plan: objectives, vocabulary, assigned reading, writing prompts
•Assessments (in the appendix)
