This lesson contains a complete guided reading worksheet with 26 questions (with answer key) for The Haunted Chess Set by Julia Remine Piggin. Questions consist of True and False, fill in the blank and short answer.
It will take about 40-60 minutes for the students to complete this worksheet (depending on the student).
As a public high school English teacher, the biggest challenge I have is getting students to read in class or at home. Put a book or short story in front of them, they'll look at it for a few seconds and start day dreaming...
Until I stumbled upon something magnificant. Teenagers like accomplishment. These worksheets ask questions while the reader reads. Every couple of sentences, there's another question in true or false, fill in the blank, define, multiple choice formats. As the student reads, boom, another question. They answer it and continue reading. Before you know it, they have finished reading the story and completed all questions for further lessons/discussions.
These worksheets are great for daily lessons, test/quiz grades, extra credit, homework, group work (in pairs of two), substitute teacher lessons, emergency lesson plans, great for ESOL or however you can imagine.

I have been teaching in a public high school for 8 years in all high school grade levels (Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors). My techniques and strategies have shown increases in the state assessment tests.
