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 and be creative: students continue the role playing scenario begun in the introductory lessons by keeping a daily journal of the things that happen to them and their classmates as they are stranded on a deserted island.
The second assignment is to inform: students organize and summarize the information they have read for the nonfiction reading assignment related to the book. This serves the double purpose of helping to prepare the students for an oral presentation about the same information.
The third assignment is to persuade: students are sent to the island to persuade the boys that they should try to get along better. Students write a persuasive speech to present to a gathering of the boys on the island.
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.
