This novel study guide is designed to use with high-level 4th through 6th grade students, and was specifically designed with gifted learners in mind. The level of depth in questioning and discussion will be at the teacher’s discretion, based on student need and readiness.

This novel study encourages readers to analyze text on a deeper level, develop their critical thinking skills, and gain an understanding of theme and descriptive language. Students will think, infer, and interpret both literal and figurative language used throughout the journey in “The Lands Beyond”.

Students will meet objectives for deep thinking using a combination of discussion, independent and/or group reading, and answer questions based on the icons of Depth and Complexity. These questions are designed to be high-level and open ended, so that students have to think critically to arrive at an answer. Many questions will help students form deeper understandings of global concepts.
This book contains an abundance of figurative language. Students who think literally may struggle understanding the text. While it is recommended to teach the types of figurative language in context, literal thinking students may benefit from learning about the types of figurative language before reading the novel.

Upon completing this novel study, students will have a greater understanding of the genre of fantasy, as well as develop their ability to analyze figurative language, and theme. It is the hope of the author that this novel is an engaging way to deepen students’ thinking about literature and global issues as well.
