Sense and Sensibility : An Adaptation for Elementary School

Total Pages: 84
File Size: 9 MB



This adaptation of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen was written and illustrated by my daughter who is currently in college. Her love of reading shows though the words in this story. It is intended for younger/elementary students as an introduction to Jane Austen as an author. She made every attempt to stay true to the main theories of the story as well as the spirit of the characters and author’s purpose.

This unit also has various activities to accompany her adaptation of Sense and Sensibility including my entire social skills unit on Being a Good Friend. The materials were designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through reading this adaptation. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on what happens to these best bunny-friends. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the story and make personal connections.
