A Few Additional Notes
There is a group theme project in this unit. Students will become knights on a quest to bring their Liege information about the Arthurian Legend.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. In Writing Assignment One students will write an informative essay about their quest project assignments. Writing Assignment Two asks students to give a personal response to one of two quotes from the story. In Writing Assignment Three students pretend to be the prosecuting attorney for Killer Kane's attempted murder trial, and they write their closing arguments to the jury.
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.
