A Note About A Few Of The Many Different Assignments Included: There is a group theme project in this unit. This project requires students to study the text for references to the group's assigned theme, discuss the theme among themselves using a discussion guide, and present information about the theme to the class. There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. In the first writing assignment students write a short work of historical fiction using a newspaper or magazine article as a basis for their stories. In the second writing assignment students write a letter to send back in time to Lily telling her in detail about an event or topic that was alluded to in the novel. In the third writing assignment students rewrite the scene when T. Ray comes to get Lily from the calendar sisters, from his point of view and persuading Lily to return home with him.
