Madeleine L'Engle 's classic book is a great one for both discussion and critical thinking, and this packet will encourage your students to do both. Included are discussion questions sorted by chapter listed in chart form. They can be used to lead a standard classroom discussion or cut apart, as many at a time as desired, for smaller group discussions. They are also perfect for a pull-from-the-hat student-led discussion.
Also included are writing prompts per chapter. These are multi-faceted questions meant to encourage critical thinking and often ask the student to put him- or herself in the place of a character from the story.
