Jim Murphy, The Great Fire - Grade 6

The Great Fire by Jim Murphy provides the text for a study of the Chicago fire of 1871. The plan is designed as a close reading activity so that all learners have the same background information require for writing. Richly detailed, the plan also includes photographs of Chicago, historic and contemporary articles, and directions for an argumentative writing assignment. A great resource.
