In this unit, students begin the unit with a shared writing experience, writing a summary of the first half of the novel Love That Dog by Sharon Creech. Then, they complete their reading of the book with a focus on what inspired Jack as a writer. Students are guided in finding and organizing evidence for this prompt in preparation for a book discussion with peers.
