The Smallest Dragonboy
Overview
  • Introduction
    • This unit is based on the fantasy story The Smallest Dragonboy by Anne McCaffery. Students fill in a conflicts chart, or tree map, to help them track internal and external conflicts within the story. They then use the chart, along with their responses to text-dependent questions and evidence from the story, to write an essay that answers the question: How does the main character’s determination and perseverance help him overcome challenges?
