This is a seventy page novel unit and interactive notebook for the novel The Devil’s Arithmetic by Jane Yolen. This resource contains ready-made, Common Core interactive notebooking activities to accompany each chapter of this book.
With interactive notebooks, students are active learners as they cut, fold, glue, and complete activities in their notebooks. These activities will require students to analyze the author’s craft and literary elements such as conflict, symbolism, irony, and setting. Answer keys and directions for foldables are included for each handout. Pictures of each page of the notebook are included too! Everything is ready for you to teach.
We are extremely excited about this product! Completing novels using interactive notebooking is awesome because students are active, and they love it! Once the unit is finished, students can use the notebook as a reference. Literary terms and opportunities for analysis of these devices are provided throughout the unit. The best part is that once you purchase this unit, you can reuse it every year!
