This resource begins with a graphic table of contents depicting materials needed for a 6 week study of The Kite Runner. The introductory materials in this unit describe the themes that will be explored - redemption, loyalty, friendship, isolation, loss of innocence and the relationships between parents and children. The students will study the novel through group work and independent writing extension assignments. Reading strategies are introduced each week and practiced throughout the study of the novel.
