This is a 12 page booklet containing 74 novel study questions and 15 bonus final activities & questions based on Rob Buyea's novel "Because of Mr Terupt". Unlike other novel studies you may come across, this novel study pack contains questions that ONLY involve higher order thinking- analysis, evaluation, creation. There are no 'busy work' questions- they are all purposeful and encourage children to analyse the text at a deep level as well as connect to the text. The questions are loosely based on Bloom's Taxonomy and the Williams Model. Most questions ask children to analyse events and themes in the story, though most chapters contain questions on language and grammatical features as well. Great as a whole class novel study, small group or independent activity for high ability readers.
I do not include spaces for answers, as this allows you to differentiate... you might expect a 1 sentence answer from your lowest group of students, and a whole essay on the same question from your top group of students, including evidence/quotes from the text. It gives you the flexibility to use the questions how you choose. In fact, it also allows you to designate (or let the students choose) which questions are answered by which students.
NOTE: I have a wide range of HIGHER ORDER THINKING novel studies for sale- check out all my titles at my store! They are my best-sellers, as I believe they genuinely fill a need in the market- I actually began making them because I couldn't find anything like them already on the market. I got sick of having to use literature studies that involved really basic types of questioning, and just didn't challenge or extend students' thinking and understanding at all. These novel studies take me a lot of time and careful thought to create- you are truly getting a lot of value for money! I hope you find them as helpful and enjoyable to use as my previous customers have!
