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 write about an adventure they have had or would like to have. It gives students the opportunity to express their own thoughts and ideas, and to practice some creative writing. In the second assignment students are to persuade Bilbo either to go or not to go with Thorin & Co. The third assignment is to give students a chance to write an informative composition. It serves the dual purpose of helping students focus and organize the information they have gathered while working on their projects and helping the teacher evaluate the project work.
The project is to assign one topic (listed in the LitPlan) to each student or to a small group (2-3) of students. The students then should look in the text for all references to their topic, check alternate sources for information about that topic, prepare to give a report and lead a discussion about their topic, and submit a written report (Writing Assignment #3).
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.
