Proud to share materials for one of my favorite books of all time. You won't find my daily activities as prescribed as some of my other units. Rather, I spend a lot of time in open discussion on this book. So many quotable and discussion worthy moments. What you will find are several reading quizzes that combine lower and higher order skills (did you read and you understand it?). As the book goes on, you'll notice the questions become more focused.
The themes for this unit are social justice, and also the degree to which our environments shape the people we become. Done beautifully with the House on Mango Street.
There are two project based assessments and rubrics at the end--a newspaper project and reader's theatre.
