Donnell, E. 2022. Seventh Grade Book Club Unit. Undergraduate Honors Thesis. University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The purpose of this book club unit is to teach students the valuable lessons they need to learn about adversity and emotions while still preparing them for the assessments that are required by school districts. This unit is centered around “Drums Girls and Dangerous Pie” and “Wonder”. These books are part of the required curriculum for on-level 7th graders within Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) in Lincoln, NE. Open discussions and collaboration are the two main ways that students will come to understandings within this unit.
