This is a cute handout that features 20 questions that can be applied to any novel. Besides just checking comprehension, they can be used as essay prompts or test questions. They facilitate critical thinking, and help the reader make connections with the work. These are questions that strategic readers constantly answer in their minds as they read. They provide purpose for reading and are a springboard for analysis.
