Enjoy this pre-reading document to be used with Linda Sue Park's novel, A Long Walk to Water. This two-page document assesses students background knowledge about Sudan in a general way (ie: where is it, what is it, what does it look like?). The document also asks students to define important terms, including refugee and juxtaposition. Lastly, the document asks students to describe their most physically exhausting and challenging experience. This can be used later in the unit to help students relate to Salva's journey, compare and contrast their struggles, etc.
