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 express personal opinions: students write a composition in which they tell what the quotation, "When the legends die, the dreams end. When the dreams end, there is no more greatness" means. The second assignment is to inform: students write a composition in which they tell about the legends they read about, in preparation for an oral report. The third assignment is to practice persuasive writing: students choose an issue related to the environment, research it, and then write a letter to a government official persuading that person to agree with their own viewpoint. 

LitPlan Uses

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.
