This is a unit for Gene Luen Yang's graphic novel American Born Chinese. The product does come with an answer guide for the reading questions. The unit breaks the novel into 6 parts, it includes a character sheet to fill out while reading the novel, 60 comprehension questions that cover the whole novel (focusing on higher order thinking and visual literacy), vocabulary terms with each chapter of the novel, and 3 activities to fill out with the novel.
