PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This novel study contains comprehension questions for each chapter of the book "Shoeshine Girl," which is written at a 3.0 reading level (grade equivalent).

The last thing Sarah Ida wants to do is spend the summer with her Aunt Claudia. But when her parents send her away because of problems at home, that is exactly what she has to do. With no allowance and no fun to be had, Sarah Ida decides to look for a job. But who will hire a ten year old? Al, the shoeshine man, will!

Sarah loves her job, even if it means getting knee-deep in shoe polish every day. Then something terrible happens and it looks like the shoeshine stand will have to close forever. If Sarah Ida wants to keep it open, she'll have to learn a few lessons about growing up along the way ... (taken from Amazon.com)

Each section of this novel study has a scoring guide that can be used to help students reflect and improve on their written responses to reading. These can easily be changed to meet the needs of your students and your teaching.

For chapter, students are asked to create higher-level questions to bring to their book group discussions.

At the end of the comprehension questions, you will find over 60 related activities for this book. With hands-on activities, students are encouraged to be minds-on thinkers and problem-solvers. These projects can be used with the whole group, small groups, and/or individuals, and are especially helpful in differentiating for diverse learners.

Common Core Standards – relevant for reading (literature) and writing – are included.

Since the file is a pdf it would have been nice if you'd left off the grading scale that is on each section. I am unable to edit the pdf so now I am forced to retype it since it doesn't align to my county's grading system. I purchased a unit so that I would be able to save time, this didn't save me time.
On  November 14, 2013Rivian Bass answered:
I am more than happy to send you a word doc. I have changed the format of the file and you should have received a note that the file you purchased was updated (changed to a word doc). You are now able to download the word doc version. Could you please let me know that you were able to access the word doc? Thanks...
