Product Description
This download includes 17 lessons on Sherman Alexie's "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian," ranging from character and quote analysis to discussions of book censorship to comparing and contrasting Alexie and Junior, the narrator of the novel. Several of the lessons include a literature circles format, in which students read independently and gather information for a particular "role" before joining for a small group discussion on the reading. Additionally, many of the lessons have a specific focus on discrete reading skills - distinguishing between major and minor details, analyzing character traits, and writing objective summaries. Finally, it includes an essay with scaffolds and essay map.

These lessons were originally designed for struggling readers at the early high school level and include many scaffolds - image-heavy lessons, a specific and consistent structure, sentence starters and examples. The content could be adapted for mature 8th graders.

There is a unit assessment available as a separate download.
