This twenty-four page teacher's resource for teaching E.L. Koningsburg's 1968 Newbery Medal winner has two components.
The THINK, WRITE, CREATE section offers chapter-by-chapter and whole-book open-ended activities based on the higher level thinking skills of Bloom's Taxonomy. Difficulty levels are varied to accommodate the needs of individual students including the gifted. Cross-curricula connections and vocabulary building are targeted in a number of these activities.
The second component is a group of seven GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS and that spring from a specific story event, idea, or character and one research/data-collection activity. Each topic offers opportunity for improving and polishing composition skills.
