These 20 questions will guide the student through the steps of analysis so they are reading deeply and with attention to higher level thinking. No more plot summary or objective testing over low-level knowledge based questions! Challenge them to interact with their book. Can be used for SSR books, lit circles, summer reading, independent outside of class books, as well as class reads. An optional essay may follow, so the 20 questions could also serve as a preparation pre-write activity as part of the writing process.
