This is a before reading activity for Jesse Stuart's "A Split Cherry Tree." This is for high school students who struggle with reading. There is a link to a free online text of the story, so don't worry if you don't have a copy. Before reading or listening to the story, students will agree or disagree with the comments. Then, after they have read the story, they make corrections to any of the comments/statements on which they may have a different opinion based upon the reading of the story. These are also great before and after discussion starters. Created by Shannon Bailey.
