This historical fiction novel by Harold Keith is set during the Civil War with a good mix of battle descriptions and romance to appeal to both male and female. This unit not only provides quizzes that assess both comprehension and vocabulary, but it also offers stimulating activities, assignments, projects, and class debate that urge students to think at a higher level about what the Civil War meant to those who lived in the past, and how it affects the individual today. This document also contains a pre- and post-test to gauge student learning, rubrics for all assignments, and directions for each assessment that coincide with each thought-filled essential question that this unit explores. This would make a wonderful cross-curriculum unit with Social Studies classes. The thumbnails that the website created seem to be distorted compared to the document itself, but the free preview will give you a good representation. Created by "That Teacher."
