This is a reproducible student packet to be used with the novel Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan. The book is divided in two chapter sections. Each section contains vocabulary, figurative language, comprehension questions and a higher-order thinking activity. The higher order thinking activities include tracking predictions, visualization monitoring, letter writing, creating an I poem from a character's perspective, creating a newspaper article, and using a graphic organizer to analyze character development. The packet is easy to use and ready to print for your students. I really loved the book and hope you enjoy using this packet with your students.
