Loser, by Jerry Spinelli, tells the story of a good hearted boy who is often clueless about how his behaviors are seen by others. It spans his childhood, first through sixth grade. An excellent book for discussion and writing opportunities. The unit includes comprehension questions, writing prompts and vocabulary activities.
Reading comprehension, activities, and an approach to writing elements such as narrator/audience, character traits, and foreshadowing, that will help your students go beyond the plot as readers and develop their own writing skills. Includes information on Michelangelo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This 16 page super unit is a perfect enhancement to E.L. Konigsburg's Newberry Medal Winner.
