The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare
The Sign of the Beaver Think, Write, Create/Graphic Organizers is a 35- page resource for teaching Elizabeth George Speare's 1984 Newbery Honor Book with components.
The THINK, WRITE, CREATE section offers chapter-by-chapter and whole-book open-ended activities based on the HIGHER LEVEL THINKINS SKILLS of Bloom's Taxonomy and elements of literature. Difficulty levels are varied to accommodate the needs of individual students including the gifted. Cross-curricula connections and vocabulary building are targeted in some of these activities.
The second component is a group of eight GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS that spring from a specific Sign of the Beaver event, idea, or character. Each topic offers opportunity for improving and polishing composition skills.
