Been looking for the perfect book to connect everything from Shakespeare to Mythology? The Alchemyst by Michael Scott is the perfect answer. This book is filled with mythological and historical allusions as well as poetic, literary, and dramatic devices. Either to start your year or tie it all together, this unit plan introduces the idea of an allusion while students investigate one of the many to create an "-ology" or study-of book in which they follow one of the characters, places, or symbols closely to delve deeper into the allusion. As they are reading, they also look for devices on specific pages to practice for the retakeable device quiz. Students will love following along to the book on Audible with times and chapters included in the agenda to work around your own schedule. All handouts and prezi are linked to lesson plans and can be edited if necessary for your own purposes.
