"The One and Only Ivan" FLEX Book Club

Ms. Heather, M.Ed., Gifted Education Specialist
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(35)
In this 4-week FLEX book club, students will read the novel "The One and Only Ivan" by Katherine Applegate and respond to their weekly reading within the classroom.

Class experience

Through the reading of this novel, students will have the opportunity to deepen their understandings of the novel while analyzing the characters, plot, setting, theme(s), and/or author's purpose, among other topics.  
Ms. Heather has been a certified teacher for 20 year and a gifted education teacher/specialist for 10 of those years.  Teaching and discussing high quality literature is a favorite activity to do with students.  
Students will need access to the book "The One and Only Ivan" by Katherine Applegate which can be obtained from the public library, as an ebook, or purchased.  
It is also recommended that students keep a reading response journal to record their reading reflections in.  This can simply be a notebook.  
Students will be provided with reading prompts each Sunday, as well.  
Based on the true story of a gorilla who now lives happily in a lowland gorilla habitat at Zoo Atlanta but before that had spent 27 years in a cage in a shopping mall after being captured as a baby in Africa, THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN tells, from the gorilla's standpoint, of life in the circus mall, being gawked at by tourists, and how it all seems so normal. But the arrival of a baby elephant starts to trigger memories, and before long Ivan finds himself making promises he's not sure how he's going to keep.
