This A Wizard of Earthsea: Themes of the Novel lesson plan also includes:
Building off the homework assignment from the previous lesson in this series, class members explore themes in Ursula K. Le Guin's novel A Wizard of Earthsea through discussion and a writing activity. Pupils share their homework and discuss the listed subjects before writing a quick overview of how they would teach the novel. For this writing task, individuals must choose a focus topic and identify passages to support their claims.
- The writing assignment will interest students and provide a unique task while still requiring textual evidence and analysis
- Since the resource offers four new subjects to explore, it would be realtively straightfoward to set up a jigsaw-style discusssion to cover all the topics
- Consider providing a lesson outline to help pupils structure their writing; the plan does not provide support materials for this assignment
