Description

Use this package of chapter-by-chapter questions as you take your class through Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston’s compelling true story, Farewell to Manzanar. As we work to pull more non-fiction materials into our Common Core-aligned classrooms, this autobiographical account of life in a Japanese internment camp during WWII is an important title to include.

The worksheet questions were designed to pull your students into the Wakatsuki family’s story and inspire them to think deeply about the author’s themes.

This packet includes 22 pages of student handouts with detailed short-answer questions covering every chapter of Farewell to Manzanar. A separate 10-page detailed answer key is also included, of course. (A total of 32 pages in PDF format.)

In addition to working as homework assignments, the sheets can also serve as small-group or full-class discussion starters, short-answer quizzes, and/or differentiated enrichment. I like to mix-and-match the worksheets to keep things fresh as we work through our Farewell to Manzanar unit.
