120 multi-part questions + 13 bonus final activities. All questions involve higher order thinking and will develop students' understanding of author purpose, narrative writing techniques, figurative and sensory language, grammar and parts of sentences and inference. They will also encourage your students to make connections to the text, make predictions about the text, and create their own writing, drawing and other forms of media based on the text.
There are NO time waster questions... ALL questions elicit higher order thinking and are based on First Steps Reading Strategies, CARS, Williams Model and Blooms Taxonomy. Great for Grades 3-6, especially gifted high ability groups (also appropriate for Grade 2 gifted students).
30 pages of questions in chapter-by-chapter format (3-5 questions per chapter). No lines to write answers on- students write answers in their own class workbooks, so that they are not limited by the number of lines given. This allows you to differentiate to meet the needs of the children (ie. for older and/or higher ability students, set the expectations higher- lengthier detailed answers with evidence from the text, whereas for younger or lower-ability students, they may just write a 1 sentence answer).
