A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. In the first assignment, students consider the effects of prejudgments on others by writing a persuasive essay to someone who prejudged them. In the second assignment students write to explain the meanings of two poems: "The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and "The Horse is NewlY" by e.e. cummings. The third assignment asks students to write their personal opinions regarding what things are important over the course of a lifetime.
There is a group theme project in this unit in which students research one of the national parks or monuments associated with the main character's journey west. They will research the park's history, activities, climate, and most importantly, its association with Native Americans.
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.
