I used this in my 6th grade LD Resource class. It was created to fit my students needs, but can be modified to work with 4th - 7th grade. This took my class 3 weeks to finish (would probably take a gen. ed class 2 weeks).
The Limit by Kristen Landon novel study includes:
Needs vs. Wants worksheet, debt discussion prompts, Ch. 1 review (open-ended questions), Week 1 Vocab/Spelling list, Week 1 Vocabulary review, Week 1 Vocabulary Test, Week 2 Vocab/Spelling List, Week 3 Vocab/Spelling List, Character Chart, Ch. 10-17 Review (open ended questions), Essay prompt w/ rubric
The final essay compares/contrasts The Limit to The Giver. We read the novels back to back and found many similarities as we were reading. My students and I worked together to create the essay prompt.
