Students will enjoy this captivating and mind boggling story of teenagers who discover that they have been set apart for a specific and bizarre purpose-- to be "unwound" for their individual parts to be donated to people needing them. We will discuss themes such as freedom, individuality, human value, choices, and friendship. We will also examine characters, author craft/purpose, and learn valuable vocabulary as we read. There will be random response questions and vocabulary practice that...
Students will learn about themes such as the value of each individual, the importance of true friendship, and making difficult decisions, while enjoying the shared experience of this dystopian novel, UNWIND, by Neal Shusterman. We will also be adding valuable advanced words to our vocabulary through contextual and authentic usage.
I have read this book as a read aloud with an 8th grade class. It sparked many questions and contemplations that generated discussion among the students. The overall impression was thankfulness that the world is not truly like this. And admiration for the bravery of the characters.
Generally, we do most of the work in class as we read the text together and discuss what we've read. Occasionally there may be an activity to reinforce the new vocabulary words we are learning, or think questions to help us connect to the reading.
A copy of book UNWIND by Neal Shusterman (digital or paper copy) paper and pen or pencil for notes and keeping list/definitions of vocabulary words
Informal assessment throughout our reading sessions, to be sure students comprehend the reading and are thinking critically about it. Connections to the characters and recognizing author characterization skills.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I strongly encourage you to read the Common Sense Media summary and reviews to understand the good, the bad, and the ugly opinions about this book. Then I ask that you determine your child is mature enough for this matter. As we read, we will focus on the positive, aim to understand why the characters act the way they do, and approach the controversial subjects objectively, noting that all humans have individual value. As a teacher, I aim to keep my political views out of the classroom, and instead maintain an empathetic, compassionate and objective viewpoint towards the characters of our stories. I encourage parent questions and concerns in regards to any sensitive material.
I try to be flexible in my schedule, so if you do not see a time/day that works for you, please suggest a time and I will accommodate if I am able.
