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. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to express personal opinions: students write their opinions about the relationship(s) between people and animals on our planet. The second assignment is to inform: students choose an animal on the endangered species list, do background research, and write a report explaining the background, giving the current status of the animal, and making recommendations for appropriate actions that can be taken to help the animal. The third assignment is to persuade and to give students a chance to be creative: students create a mail-out piece for the National Wildlife Foundation (or any wilderness/conservation association) to persuade people to make a contribution.
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.
