A Literature Unit
How to Train Your Dragon Teacher Guide
A Literature Unit: How to Train Your Dragon is the ideal resource for Australian Curriculum-aligned English instruction, combining fun activities with detailed literature instruction. The unit is based on the popular children’s novel by Cressida Cowell, which follows the adventures of a hopeless Viking boy who becomes a hero through extraordinary dragon-training feats. While Cowell’s funny and thrilling story will appeal to the most reluctant of readers, students who complete the literature unit as they read will build fundamental skills in reading, writing, listening and critical thinking.
This literature unit consists of two parts: this teacher guide, and an accompanying student workbook (available separately). It is divided into ten sections, allowing one for each week of the school term. This guide includes instructions on using the literature unit, spelling and vocabulary lists and three fun and engaging activities for each section. Further, it describes the way in which A Literature Unit: How to Train Your Dragon covers almost all of the aspects of Language, Literature and Literacy strands from the Australian Curriculum: English for Years 4–6.
Activities in this literature unit include:
- Possessive apostrophes
- Viking brainstorm
- Create a new language
- Book and movie comparison
- How might it end?
