Reviewer Comments:

This resource is an extremely thorough Cause and Effect lesson plan for Chris van Allsburg’s book The Wretched Stone. The curriculum integrates ELA, Social Studies and Art. Standards, objectives and ideas are included making this an easy to use resource. Excellent questions are provided for the student to make in depth connections to self, other texts and the world. The lesson is a great example of applying best practices in literacy education to curriculum.
