PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This extensive unit plan for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is completely designed around the philosophy of developing close reading skills and text based responses which require supporting evidence for nearly every aspect of each chapter of the novel. The novel unit is completely original and has been keenly tuned to address a wide range of learners with varying reading comprehension skills. In short, this unit will help all students to look closely at Haddon’s craft and encourage them to write thoughtful, in depth responses and support their ideas with evidence from the text.
