Lesson plans and strategies for Tangerine from Web English Teacher: http://www.webenglishteacher.com/bloor.html
The following 30-page unit on Tangerine addresses many standardized testing skills, especially those for the Florida FCAT. It was written by Lorrie Mintzer, the school media specialist at Pahokee Middle/Senior High in Pahokee, Florida. It is used here with her permission: Tangerine Unit For Teachers
Film note: Sean Baker’s indie film Tangerine is not based on my novel Tangerine. It’s quite good, but likely unsuitable for your middle school class. While we’re on the subject, the film Taken is not based on my novel Taken although, coincidentally, both are about fathers and kidnapped daughters.
