Product Description
Need a guide for teaching Witness? Look here!

This is a loose unit plan that comes with worksheets and teacher notes. When I teach Witness, a lot of what we do is discussion and student response. I like to use it to delve into human nature and talk about some of the complexities of human nature. Students respond very well to this book because it is not too overwhelming for them, especially the lower levels.

What’s included:

Page 1 &2: Cover art, overview of how I teach the novel

Page 3&4: Worksheet over racism and subplot

Page 5&6: Character sheet. It has every character and students track their progress through the novel. In the end, they have to decide if they are static or dynamic based on their evidence. Page 6 is the key.

Page 7: The character sheet I use for lower level classes. It only has them track the dynamic characters, but they don’t know that until the end. It keeps it from being so overwhelming.

Page 8: Key for character sheet from page 7.

Page 9: Has starter questions and ending questions that I used one time when I taught the novel. Good to get ideas.

Pages 10-13: This has every discussion question, important point, thing to remember, etc, from the novel. It’s great to makes sure you don’t miss anything.

Page 14: Has everything mentioned in the novel with the Leopold and Loeb case. It is a good resource when checking their subplot sheet.

Pages 15-18: This has what happens with every character in the novel broken into acts. Each act lists the characters and then tells what happens with them every time they talk. VERY THOROUGH.

Page 19: Terms of use
