This unit provides a differentiated novel study of Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time and focuses on informational writing and theme analysis. During the unit, students develop their reading comprehension skills, use higher-order thinking skills to discuss the book with their peers and teachers, and use apps – including Nearpod, Padlet, and PicCollage – to analyze a setting’s relationship with the theme. At the end of the unit, students integrate what they have learned in order to write their own analysis of the text in the form of a newspaper article, pamphlet or a recorded or live news report with a written transcript.
