Product Description
This complete unit contains resources for teaching The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain using interactive notebooks (ISNs). You get vocabulary lists and quizzes, full lessons on satire and character analysis, two projects, and a Unit Test. You also get an editable Unit Calendar, Student Overview Handout, and ISN rubrics. As a bonus, I’ve included a lesson on Literary Quote Analysis.

These lessons use the IN (Bellringer) - THROUGH (Teacher Input/Guided Classwork) - OUT (Exit/Independent Practice/Homework) method. This is a great way to ensure gradual release of responsibility.
