A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to inform: students take the information they have gathered through research, group work and class discussion and organize it into a composition. The second assignment is to persuade: students create a humorous puppet sketch to use to persuade a little boy or girl not to be afraid in the dark. The third assignment is to give students the opportunity to be creative and express their own opinions: students choose one of several topics related to the themes or ideas in the play.
For the unit project, students will be putting on a Comic Variety Show. The show will consist of "acts" they will create and perform using the different kinds of humor they have learned about. Assign one type of humor to each group of students. The students are to create a short "act" based on that type of humor. Each "act" should last between three and five minutes.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
