This full project-based unit gives an opportunity for students to analyze plot, character, and theme in the novel while also delving deeper into the concept of how literature fosters a sense of empathy.

Three varied quizzes assess reading comprehension, while the final project encourages depth of learning by offering individual students a choice of a persuasive (presentation), narrative (continuation of the story), or expository (board game) final creative project all using the same rubric to assess skills.

Whether you are new to project-based learning or a seasoned professional, this unit plan provides clear instructions on how to make sure your students always know the bigger picture of what they are learning.

Students will answer the driving question: How does literature foster a sense of empathy?

They will follow these steps to deeper understanding of the thematic ideas:

B1: Students will be able to recall key plot points in the novel and interpret meaningful passages.

B2: Students will be able to relate non-fiction articles about autism to the narrator’s behaviors and perceptions.

B3: Students will be able to draw conclusions about the characters’ actions and theme through interactive discussion.

B4: Students will be able to design their choice of either a narrative, argumentative, or informative project that synthesizes various elements of plot, character, and theme from the novel.

This complete unit includes the following:

Lesson layout with detailed description of the project process

Relevant image discussion hook lesson to get students talking about how we empathize with others.

Entry presentation that introduces final project goal, driving questions and benchmark scale

Reading schedule breakdown

Graphic organizer to help students track the plotline
