PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Realistic Fiction Genre study contains daily lesson plans for a 16-day Realistic Fiction unit, pacing guide, and all applicable reproducibles needed for student copies.

The genre study presented here can be integrated into any type of reading program you use. It is perfect for reader’s workshop, small reading groups, reading buddies, and even whole class novels. This particular genre study provides you with a reproducible worksheet for each literary technique/element presented. You simply copy and present to your students!

This Realistic Fiction Genre Unit helps you teach your students the important literary aspects of Realistic Fiction. The unit begins with a book selection survey to help your students pick the right book. The unit then proceeds to teach students the most important elements of Realistic Fiction: setting, character, and plot. Lessons included in this packet are:
*Book Survey

*Assessment Rubric

Each lesson listed above includes:
*Pacing guide for the 16-day unit
*Student Notes on each literary technique/element – notes are included at the top of each worksheet. This is a great reference tool to assist the students while they work!
*Reproducible worksheet for each literary technique/element with a student application activity.
*Rubric for assessing students understanding of the literary elements of Historical Fiction.

If you use the Reader’s Workshop model of teaching literature, it is preferred to conduct a Realistic Fiction read-aloud simultaneously to assist in teaching the elements of Realistic Fiction. In this manner, you will have examples to share and discuss with the students during a mini-lesson. Students are then able to find these literary elements independently using their own selected novel.
