Product Description
I built this unit around the novel the Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch. I wanted my students to do some self-exploration and discovery while reading for comprehension, so this unit contains a little bit of everything. It is all guided by a full lesson plan that lasts a month and a half based off of an 80 minute class period. It begins with an intro essay that challenges the students to discover "Who Do They Think They Are" (all pre-writing forms, lesson plans, paper outlines, peer evaluation forms and rubrics are included), then moves into the actual novel. For the novel, I included a full lesson plan, essay/short answer questions per section, comprehension questions per section, quizzes for each section with answer keys and several mini-activities to engage the students throughout. The final piece of this unit challenges the students to create their own "last lecture" (rubric and requirements included). NOTE: Page #s correspond to large print text
