I taught 6th grade English for 8 years, and this ended up being the most valuable worksheet I created. I perfected it over time. I made sure it included multiple state-tested concepts (main idea, for example) as well as basic parts of a story--- such as a plot map. It includes nine fill-in-the-blank concepts. It can be used with ANY short story or novel. The best part is that it is an ongoing worksheet that students can pull out after chapters are read daily.
