World War II Pearl Harbor novel unit
Here is a series of activities for Harry Mazer's novel "A Boy at War". There are comprehension quizzes, characterization activities, setting activities, a plot map, conflict questions, and point of view questions. The majority of the questions focus on reading skills instead of literal comprehension. Students are asked to cite evidence from the text throughout the quizzes, making this a perfect resource for teaching the common core standards. There is the main PDF of files, then there is another PDF that has just the comprehension checks in it. This has also been updated to include possible Socratic Seminar topics.
