Writing Unit: Claire Encounters a Bird
In all but three chapters of The Legend Awakes, Claire encounters a bird. Some of these encounters are more significant than others but all are special to the girl who loves our feathered friends. In this writing unit, students will be given the opportunity to write a short scene incorporating a bird encounter in one of three chapters (10, 13, 16). But to do so, they must first become birders, just like Claire!
