A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. In the first assignment, students write to inform. They are to decide on an activity for their motion study project, tell what it is, what they intend to do, and what they think they will gain from doing it. In the second assignment, students are asked to consider the importance of popularity (based on Mr. Gilbreth's comment about it in the book) and to write down their personal opinions about that topic. The third writing assignment is to persuade a parent, guardian, or elected official to do or agree to something the student wants.
The unit project is for students to complete a motion study project.
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.
