Description

Reading workshop can seem vague and ineffective, but not when it is skills-based with specific activities. This month-long complete historical fiction reading unit will enable your students to manage their reading, use text evidence to back up claims, and understand skills such as theme and symbolism. You'll have everything you need linked in one slideshow so you can just attach and go.

This month-long unit includes:

✅ Main slideshow that is linked with lessons, activities, and due dates

✅ 10 mini lessons (use digitally but can be printed for notebooks): Intro to historical fiction, literary terms, identity markers, response to conflict, minor characters, symbolism, theme, dialogue/internal monologue, climax/endings, truth from fiction

✅ 5 sets of discussion questions for groups to use based on the mini lessons

✅ 5 separate reading entries for students to record text evidence based on their books that match up with the mini lessons

✅ Activities show students how to properly cite text evidence with examples

✅ Background information activity for the time period

✅ Reading plan so clubs know what pages to read and when

✅ A culminating project ( 'one pager") about the theme of the book

Here is what I recommend for a smooth, organized unit:

⭐️Set up your students in book clubs with historical fiction books. I recommend letting them choose their books and groups when possible.

⭐️ Plug in the dates on the reading plan. Then, attach the main slideshow to your digital learning platform, making a copy for each student.

⭐️Students will create a reading plan for their books. Specific directions will guide them in this.

⭐️Have students complete the background activity so that they are familiar with the setting of their novel.

⭐️Teach the mini lessons. They should last about 10-15 minutes. Remember, the goal of a reading workshop is to get the kids actually reading!

⭐️During discussion days, students should have read up to a certain point, which will first be established in their reading plan. They then spend time discussing in groups, using the questions as a guide.

⭐️At the end of the unit, have kids complete the 'one pager". These are great for assessments and bulletin boards!

Any questions, feel free to email me at [email protected].

I would truly appreciate your feedback with a rating and review. It helps me when making future products.

Enjoy!
