Holes, By Louis Sachar
Feb 23, 2001
This lesson plan is for the book "Holes." It focuses on reading, fluency comprehension, vocabulary, written expression in journals, changing adolescent behavior and attitudes, and increasing the enjoyment of reading. The purpose of this lesson is to get the reluctant reader, the discouraged learner and the disinterested teen to develop an appreciation of reading. For the avid student this will be an opporunity to be a 'student teacher' and take the responsibility for getting others to read orally, deciding how much each student will read, giving points or grades to students who read orally, helping with unfamiliar words or helping with questions, asking comprehensive questions and assigning journal prompts.
