A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or having students express personal opinions. In the first assignment, students write an informative essay based on their non-fiction assignments. In the second writing assignment, students write a letter to the editor stating if they agree or disagree with using the word "frindle," and why. For the third writing assignment, students explore characterization and write a new chapter for Frindle focusing on one of the minor characters in the novel and more fully developing that character.
In this expanded Second Edition, many sections of the book have a Points To Ponder discussion guide in the daily lessons, to point out and discuss figurative language, allusions, idioms, background knowledge, or other elements within the chapter that are not necessarily essential elements of the story but will further students' education or skills.
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.
