A Taste of Blackberries Lesson Plans

Chapter One

We will be using what we know of characters and Venn diagrams to compare and contrast the narrator and Jamie. We will produce Venn diagrams (prewriting) and draft short (one page) compare and contrast paragraphsabout the two characters.

Chapter Two

Expanding on our Venn diagrams and compare and contrast paragraphs, we will draw up a character web of Jamie to discuss (in depth) what we know about his traits, point of view, actions, and motivations for his actions. We will use this information to write group essays pondering the question: “Why did Jamie and the narrator hitchhiked?”

Chapter Three

Reinforcing our work with comparison and contrast, we will use information from web links to make comparisions of Japanese bbeetles and bees.
