Web-Based Thematic Unit:
Soldier's Heart by Gary Paulsen

Charley Goddard wants to be a man. His best way to do it is to join the First Minnesota Volunteers to fight for the Union during the Civil War. Charley soon finds out that,"war is always, in all ways, appalling."

This web-based thematic unit contains resources and activities for both teachers and students.

The Teacher Resources section contains an overview of the unit, in addition to ideas for establishing the learning environment, resources, and technology setup. It also provides classroom management strategies and a series of lesson outlines with standards and benchmarks, lesson timing, book connections, and assessment tools.

The Student Resources section contains links to ten activities for children to complete as they read the book.
