This package is a complete novel study unit plan for The Conch Bearer by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
I have created this unit to focus on literacy skills and building vocabulary and comprehension. To that end, there are vocabulary and comprehension activities for every set of chapters. However, in addition to those literacy skills, a literary focus is also built in via the activities which demand reflection and writing, and those which focus on concepts such as conflict and character traits.
While this unit differs from the literature circles which are my custom, I have used this unit plan in my own classroom and have found it to be very effective, so you can consider it tried, tested, and true.
The following activities are included in this package:
Suggested Items for Marking
Suggested Unit Plan (a minimum of 18 classes worth of activities)
Vocabulary Lists and Activities
Character Traits Chart
Unit Test Outline
