The novel Double Dutch is perfect for a whole class read or an independent novel study. However, in our classrooms, we use this book as a choice on our book club list. Students in book clubs read the book independently and then get together three times to complete activities and discuss the novel. We would like to share some of our Double Dutch lesson plans with you! The download will contain activities for the following literary elements: Chapter 5 – making inferences and drawing conclusions, chapter 6- allusions, chapter 7- point of view, chapter 8 – theme.

While we use this novel as a book club choice, it is also perfect for a whole class read or an independent novel study. Our seventh graders love this book! And while it is about double dutch, it’s perfect for both girls and boys. The Tolliver twins, Randy, and Delia all have secrets, and this is one thing that makes the book such a page-turner! We hope you enjoy the free lessons. Happy teaching!
