This is a full novel study for Wilson Rawl's Where the Red Fern Grows. Easy to follow and NO PREP!! You'll receive a PowerPoint file (102 slides) to guide discussion. The best part about the guide is there is NO PRINTING involved. Save your copier allowance by simply displaying this on the screen and allowing students to take their own notes!
You will receive a PowerPoint file to guide discussion in a whole class or small group setting. Each chapter will take 30-40 minutes to complete, thus you receive at least 20 days of lesson plans!! This is a huge PowerPoint file (102 slides in all). My students used their interactive notebooks to take notes and record answers, but you can also do this on loose paper or create booklets for students if you are not a notebook user.
By following this study, students practice a variety of reading skills including characterization, imagery, compare/contrast, sequence of events, setting, theme, figurative language, inference, prediction, cause/effect, summarizing, and so much more! I used it at the end of the year to review reading concepts--super helpful for my class!
The novel version I used is from the Yearling Classics series by Random House Publishing. You will not need this version in order to complete this study. Only chapter numbers (no page #s) are used for reference.
