This packet includes introductory material, hints for presentation, and comments.
23 Chapter tests.
Vocabulary for the entire novel.
Final Exam essay questions.
I recommend the author intro.
Paragraph 2 in good prep info for the students when the teacher assigns writing an essay.
Vocabulary expectations: define each word based on the context on the page indicated.
The details in the first two chapters give important information that define the characters – their past, present, and future.
Occasionally, the questions/answers are obvious and/or followed by another question that helps with answering previous questions. That’s okay. A little help doesn’t hurt.
The answers to the questions I ask are meant to define:
the flow of the story
The answers are placed far right on the paper to make grading several tests at a time possible. I overlap them and finish quickly.
Some of the tests are very short and obviously will be combined when testing.
