This complete unit for James Dashner's novel, The Maze Runner, has everything you are looking for. Included in the nearly-100 pages of this unit are chapter questions, individual activities, group activities, an end-of-unit essay assignment, and more! The preview file only includes a brief "snapshot" of some of the material in this unit. If you cannot view the table of contents on that preview, I have provided the list of materials at the bottom on this description as well.
You might be wondering what separates this unit from the several other items listed as units for this novel on TeachersPayTeachers. I've listed just a few distinguishing elements of this unit below:
*All of the elements in this unit have been classroom-tested and found to be successful.
*This unit is not limited to chapter questions and random in-novel vocabulary, as many other units appear to be.
*Over 75% of the elements in this unit have two levels: the original work, which would be suitable for most students, and an "adapted" version, which cuts down on work load and/or makes things a little more "obtainable" for those students who need an extra push.
*There are 4 different activities in this unit that allow students to choose tasks according to their interests and multiple intelligence. Choice = results.
Of course, there are many more reasons to choose this lesson for your classroom than could ever be listed here. However, I do want to point out one last important one for teachers everywhere: your purchase of this unit includes two files for each item, all of which are zipped (compressed). While both files for each activity are identical in content, one file is a PDF and the second file is an editable Microsoft Word document. That means you are able to edit this product to meet your own individual needs as an educator, as well as the most important factor: the needs of your students.
It is my mission, here at A Teacher's Teacher, to be just that - a teacher who understands the needs of current modern-day teachers. After all, I'm in the same boat as you are, with many more years to go!
Please feel free to ask any questions about this product or request any other products you might have in mind.
