Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated. Students explore the book Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Patterson through a study of its setting, characters, many conflicts, and resolutions. They learn to apply quotes from the book to their own lives and wonder if it is possible to truly hate a sibling. At unit’s end, students take a unit assessment that tests their knowledge of the unit’s standards and create multi-media presentations in which they depict scenes from the novel. This unit can be used as a stand-alone unit or in conjunction with its companion social studies unit, Announcing World War II, and science unit, Twin Traits.
