This is a companion guide for the book, August Acrobat, by Ron Roy that you can use with reading groups or as a whole-class novel study. The reading strategies focused on in this unit are: expanding vocabulary, asking and answering questions about the key details of the text, drawing conclusions, and identifying cause and effect relationships. This resource includes vocabulary cards for a pocket chart, 2 vocabulary building sheets, strategy posters, and comprehension strategy activity for each chapter (note: 7+8 are combined) as well as before and after reading the book. This should take 2 weeks for students to complete.
