A Few Additional Notes
There is a group theme project in this unit. This project requires students to conduct research on the issue of rape, in hopes of raising awareness about it.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The first writing assignment mimics an essay Melinda and her classmates do in their English class. The second writing asks students to persuade the school board to increase rape and sexual harassment education in schools, and the third gives students several roles from which to write.
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.
