Product Description
The novel, The Education of Little Tree, is one of the few I know which has such a wide range of uses. The language is simple and straightforward which makes it an easy read across levels and abilities, including ESL students.
The subject matter covers myriad curriculum requirements: Native American literature, Philosophy, Politics, and History. The controversy over whether its genre is actually fiction or non-fiction provides a host of opportunities for a teacher to expand on the learning experience by adding the printed media attention in relation.
Literally, this Unit was originally created because I was reading the novel at the same time my students were; that is why every step is covered - quizzes, review sheets, handouts, cooperative activities, projects and various assessments.
The first time I assigned it to an 11 Honors class, they scoffed, but by the end of examining this work every which way from Sunday, most of them never forgot it. To this day, I will occasionally get an email from an ex-student saying, "Hey, remember that book you MADE us read...?" Because it was somehow relevant to a college course in which he or she was enrolled.
If nothing else - we ALL need to be reminded of the lessons this book teaches...especially in this current GREEN age.
