"The Kite Runner" is a student favorite! I have included multiple engaging activities and several articles that you can use to touch on themes regarding REDEMPTION, DOUBLE STANDARDS WITH REGARD TO GENDER, INHUMANITY, DISCRIMINATION, RAPE AS A FORM OF POWER, HUMAN RIGHTS, etc. This meets common core requirements in expository reading, the sixth shifts, and responsive teaching. Each activity is connected to one or more chapters and students will have the opportunity to analyze the text in a few different ways. There are also five quizzes and one final exam. Both have answer keys attached!
I have also included my PERSONAL pacing guide. I have 100 minute classes and provide the guide line as an additional guide to teaching the unit.
