Are you looking to add a little voice and choice to the classroom? Do you want to teach about the concept of war, but you also want to differentiate instruction? This product will help you accomplish all of these tasks and so many others. Included in this 651 page product, you will find six full novel study units. (All of these products are available for sale in my store individually, but purchasing this package will take a large percentage off the overall price.) The novel study units include: A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, I am Malala, The Book Thief, The Things They Carried, My Forbidden Face, and Things Fall Apart. Also included, you will find lesson plans, in-class activities, and connecting projects that will allow the students to have freedom in your classroom while working towards the same standards and goals. The bonus: All of the lesson plans are common core aligned!
