In this unit, students begin reading a retold version of the literary classic Peter Pan to build their understanding of how the historical context of a literary classic can have an impact on the content and also to analyze how writers develop characters to capture a reader’s imagination.
In the second half of the unit, through teacherguided close reading, independent close reading, and discussion, students analyze the characters by carefully examining the traits, motivations, actions, and points of view of the novel’s main characters. They also analyze figurative language, word relationships, and shades of meaning to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of the text.
