This listing includes the digital, PDF files for our mini-unit: Underground to Canada.
The lessons are open and go, they are largely discussion based, and (another first) the student pages are scripted in the Teacher's Guide. This allows the teacher to just open and go and have all their answers and just read it out for all levels (no more jumping around). Charlotte Mason inspired, students will be giving daily summations, making predictions, and doing oral narration throughout. There is a heavy focus on vocabulary and understanding the parts of a story, with daily practice breaking down the characters, the evolving plot, and the setting helping to master the parts of a story for all ages. There are hands on suggestions as well as numerous art projects, and we finish off each week with comprehension quizzes, ending in the final week with a novel quiz to see how well the big ideas were captured.
Throughout this unit, students will also be choosing a unit project to work on (there are options given in the Teacher's Guide) including a book report, essay, diorama, or character profile. We have also created an optional add on for this unit giving daily instruction on how to write a book report, adaptable for all ages from writing a paragraph to an essay style book report for high school!
This novel study is rich, with rich discussion prompts and deep discussions to be had. It pairs perfectly with a cup of tea or hot cocoa and some scones as you analyze some great writing and learn about history in the process!
