Books can be great springboards for deeper education, and that's what will happen with this linked novel study. Webquest in style, this study contains literature activities, as well as art, history, science, math, and creative writing projects. Each can be done independently or cooperatively, but all are designed to engage your students in the culture of Chicago during the Roaring '20s as described in Beth Fantaskey's "Isabel Feeney, Star Reporter."
The pages of this study can be used as a whole or selectively. Print the ones you'd like to use. Space is included for the student's work on each page, and if done online, links take them to other professional websites for further information. Activities within this packet make use of a variety of learning styles and include studying Al Capone, jazz, the architecture of the 'Tribune,' the vernacular of the era, and flapper fashion, among many others.
