13.                            1. Students will be able to identify at least 15 main events from their reading of
                               2. Students will accurately sequence all 15 events as how they happened in the book.

Procedures for Lesson          This is the beginning of the final unit project. The unit consists of the book Hatchet by
                               Gary Paulsen.
                               1. Introduce the final project to the students by showing examples of Hatchet story
                               maps, hand out the rubric, and talk about the expectations from the rubric.
                               2. Students will then log into a computer and go to the internet site
                               Tell students that they should only use brown idea boxes or the tab button when
                               creating a new bubble. This will allow students to sequence the events easier by
                               creating their own links between bubbles. Remind students to list as many main
                               events as possible (at least 15) before trying to sequence. Remember that this is
                               brainstorming and it doesn’t have to be perfect the first time.
                               3. Give students work time to brainstorm main events and if they have time, sequence
                               them online. If students don’t have time to sequence online then have them print out
                               their ideas and they can cut and paste them in order. (This last idea helps if you don’t
                               want students to log in and save their work.)
                               4. Make sure students leave with a printout of their work. Student’s homework is to
                               create a rough draft of their story map.

Assessment or Evaluation       Final draft of the Hatchet story map. The project will be evaluated based on the rubric that is on page 2 of this

Enrichment                     A different book can be substituted for Hatchet based on the need of the student. This would have to be done at
                               the start of the unit.
