This packet contains up to two questions per chapter for Gordon Korman's novel "Slacker." The discussion questions are purposely open-ended and subject to opinion to encourage debate and discussion in your classroom.
This packet also contains essay and creative writing prompts. All topics relate directly to issues in "Slacker," and many are also subject to opinion to encourage students to support their initial statements. These tend to compare the events in this book to issues relevant to American culture today. There are also several creative writing prompts which ask students to write journal entries, newspaper articles, etc. Writing prompts are written out on blank pages so that they can be printed and distributed, but they could also be written on the board or copied by students into assignment books.
Please ask any and all questions before purchasing. I answer as promptly as possible.
These files are not editable unless errors are found.
