The first eight weeks of this unit include detailed daily lesson plans for Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven. The last two weeks include an argumentative essay unit based on the controversial film The Secret, which is based on the law of attraction.
***You will download this unit in PDF format. I realize some teachers prefer Google Docs, so I have also included a link within the PDF to the unit in Google Doc format. Please note, for copyright protection, the Google Doc version of the unit is "view only." However, I have offered the student resources and assignments (a separate 60 page doc) in an editable doc, so students can complete and submit all assignments conveniently within Google Docs.
200 Pages of Resources:
Few novels are as engaging--especially to reluctant readers--as The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.
Students find the major themes in this novel relevant in their own lives, and in my 12 years of teaching, I have yet to have a student who hasn't enjoyed and learned from this text.
