Description

This guide is divided into chapters. For each chapter, I have provided the page numbers and a brief summary. I have also developed a journal prompt as a way to launch each chapter with student writing. Each prompt is designed to get students connected with the action of the chapter, to imagine themselves in the time period, and/or to feel empathy for the characters. I have also provided guiding questions for each chapter that can be discussed aloud or written. I have selected 5-7 Tier 2 vocabulary words for each chapter with the page numbers the words first appear on. (Tier 2 vocabulary words are high frequency and/or multiple meaning terms that are applicable across disciplines. Basically, these are the terms that are most useful to teach because students can use them more frequently and/or will see them in a variety of contexts.) Last, I have included topics for further research (enrichment topics) that are related to each chapter. These topics include available natural resources, technology/advancements, aspects of culture, as well as other facets of Ancient Maya life. At the end of this guide, I have included my version of Literature Circle roles that have been adapted to suit a Social Studies classroom or are appropriate for a historical novel. (There are six roles.) I thoroughly enjoying using this novel in my classroom and hope you do too!
