I have been teaching the Newbery winner "Banner in the Sky" for many years. It was/is hard to find solid resources and effective lesson plans for this book so I created quite a number of my own.
This is a bundled collection of written assessment comprehension questions I give my students as we are reading the book. The questions tend toward analysis, interpretation, and evaluative skills and require real thinking about the story. See the preview if you need an example. Please note: There are sets of questions provided only for after Chapters 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, and 14.
Since they are so open-ended and student answers will vary, there is not a traditional answer key provided. You will get a number of different interpretations but if you are reading the book with your class you will have no trouble evaluating their responses.
