This HyperDoc is designed to be an accompaniment to the novel The Watsons Go to Birmingham (perfect for iPads or Chromebooks). Knowing how precious our instructional minutes are, I included a little figurative language, a little science, a little geography, a little comprehension, a little character study, a little math, a little grammar, a little fun, and of course, lots of Civil Rights history.
More than 30 links are included to articles and videos that will engage your students and deepen their understanding of the novel. This PDF document can be used with the whole class, as part of reading group rotation, or assigned to individual students. You can use all of it or part of it and there are "extras" included on most pages to keep early finishers busy.
