Skills include making predictions, visualizing, problem and solution, summarizing, character traits, question types, citing text evidence, author's purpose, making comparisons and connections, and drawing conclusions. Group discussion is encouraged throughout the reading of the book. The unit would also work well with literature circles. It's been tested in several classrooms and found to be easy to follow for parents and teaching assistance .An answer key is not included as some answers vary and group discussion fosters higher level thinking skills.
