Product Description
This offering is a pair of puzzles centered about Herman Melville's Billy Budd. Both are intended to be "foot off the accelerator but still learn something" puzzles. The word search is a nice puzzle to be given BEFORE starting to read/discuss the book. It can be done individually by both middle school and high school students and could easily be given as an assignment after a test or before a break. The crossword is a little more challenging (can be done by individuals in upper grades, as teams in the lower high school levels and, perhaps, older middle school levels) and might be implemented as a form of review. About ten, or so, clues deal with Billy Budd . . . they're all in bold face type.
Remember! The point of a crossword is to have a little fun/challenge while you are learning something. You are not supposed to know each answer right away upon glancing at the clue. It would be no fun if you did. You’d have LEARNED nothing. (This is a message that might be imparted to your students.) I try to phrase enough of the clues so that a student/person will know many of the answers immediately . . . the rest of the clues I want to challenge the doer a little bit. When they’ve learned something through being challenged they’ll appreciate their accomplishment, and the experience, a lot more.
