Very good background material to support the understanding of the book. The extension activities gave added meaning to the book. The discussion question after each chapter caused thoughtful discussion. However, the comprehension questions were not meaningful- simply recall questions. The Common Core requires a more reflective response to the material read. Even with this weakness I feel the unit gives me a great deal to use as my class reads this book.

I am a first year teacher and this will be a class novel. I will not use every facet of the plans, but it will be very helpful in charting the course for the use of the book in my classroom.

UPDATE: I found this to be very helpful. We spent about 3 weeks on the novel. I added some short answer questions to the test, and I also showed a youtube video of Salva today. Even non-readers enjoyed the book. Thanks so much for developing this study guide.

UPDATE 2: I have provided a link in my blog to this product. It really was that good.
On  September 9, 2012Mrs Pennington answered:
Glad this will be a useful tool for you. I try to include more than is needed so that users can pick and choose activities to fit their students.

2. Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
3. Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.
5. Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.
10. Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
Writing:
1. Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.
2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and ac-curately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.
3. Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details, and well-structured event sequences.
4. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating under-standing of the subject under investigation.

Speaking & Listening:
1. Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
