This unit is a companion to the novel Revolution by Deborah Wiles. The unit covers literary elements such as: characterization, tone, and mood. In addition, the unit covers vocabulary, section questions,and there are essential questions throughout for use in a variety of ways (i.e., discussion, or exit tickets). These are opportunities for personal reflection. There are response sheets for additional resources (videos) which coincide with the topic of Freedom Summer. There are three options for performance tasks. I have included notes for the teacher, some answers, and an appendix A.
