Efrén Divided Lit Log (novel study) (For Classroom or Distance Learning)
4th - 7th
This lit log (novel study) is for , a realistic fiction from the perspective of a 7th grade boy whose parents are undocumented.
Themes in the book include: immigration, deportation, family, “making do”, friendship, and injustice.
Key focus skills are:
* use text to explain, draw inferences, cite textual evidence
* determine theme, central idea, summarize
* describe, compare/contrast, analyze characters, setting, events/plot
* describe, explain, analyze points of view
I hope this lit log is helpful in promoting discussion and better understanding of others.
