This Is the Rope: A Story From The Great Migration by Jacqueline Woodson is a beautiful symbolic book about how family is tied together through generations.

Using mentor texts is one of the best ways to maximize your teaching time. You are able to teach multiple skills, subjects, and topics with just one book!

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT?

  • a week of plans that teach symbolism, theme, cause and effect, concrete and sensory details, opinion writing reasons and evidence, and prepositional phrases using the book, This Is the Rope: A Story From The Great Migration by Jacqueline Woodson (book not included)
  • detailed explicit lessons, including teacher samples
  • a week-at-a-glance plan
  • mentor sentence lesson teaching prepositional phrases
  • reading lessons to teach symbolism, theme, and cause and effect with the book
  • writing lessons to teach types of details (sensory and concrete), and opinion writing with a focus on identifying and providing reasons and evidence
  • rubrics to grade a response to literature prompt and an opinion prompt
  • an original informational article about The Great Migration, an original short story about sharecroppers, and an original opinion essay about Jim Crow Laws, all written by me, Jessica Ivey
  • printables for skill practice
  • short assessments

You will notice that the units align in best practices with my other resources, so if you are already using other components like Mentor Sentences, Better Than Basal, or Everything But The Books, they can easily be incorporated into your plans without breaking stride.

In fact, this unit follows the exact same structure as my Everything But The Books resources!

*The mentor sentence lessons I have created are adapted from the ideas of Jeff Anderson. These lessons were born from the routine that worked well in my classroom, and the demos and examples I present are variations of Jeff Anderson's methods. This is not the only way to "do" mentor sentences in your classroom.*
