In this lesson students will close read the opening of John Green's novel, Looking for Alaska and answer comprehension, vocabulary and discussion questions. This is a great introduction to the novel. The questions are provided as a Microsoft Word File and with a link to the Google Doc, which is fully editable. This is a great Chromebook lesson and it is Google Classroom ready. The lesson also includes a video with John Green describing why he feels the book should not be banned. Please read the excerpt to make sure it is appropriate for your classroom. This is great for literature circles, one day activities and perfect for a sub plans. I always see students reading the full novels after reading these excerpt lessons.
