This product includes several printables aligned with common core that require students to use textual evidence to identify character traits, compare characters, visualize while reading, and identify and support text themes. There are also character charts and vocabulary cards for your word wall.
It also includes an 18 page reader's response notebook to get your readers digging deeper into the text as they move through each chapter.
In addition there is a culminating project where students are allowed to select from a broad project cafe in order to earn a minimum of 15 points. This allows students the opportunity to select activities that align with their interests and learning styles while allowing you to fully assess their understanding of the text.
