Son Novel Study Unit Plan

The unit plan for Son is designed to engage students. Students are provided opportunities to analyze three separate settings in the novel, identify, describe and analyze characters and relationships, use inquiry processes to determine how and why characters make decisions, identify and understand an author’s use of language, and use text references and quotes to infer meaning. The unit employs multiple delivery modalities, facilitates students’ cognitive thinking skills, and uses a constructivist approach to teaching and learning. Lesson plans are student-centered and are ready to implement.

Time Frame: This unit is planned as a 4 week unit outline, however, easily adaptable to 5 to 6 weeks.

Grade Level Appropriateness: Grades 5-9
