This word document accompanies the short stories: Eyewitness (by Jack London) and Leaving Desire (about Hurricane Katrina). Included are spelling and vocabulary with multiple practice pages; guided reading questions to use during the reading of these two short stories, and after reading questions. All pages included answer keys. These stories appeared together in the 8th grade anthology, but could still be used even if you are only doing one of the stories. These materials were prepared and offered for sale by Teacher1998.
