With its setting in the American Revolution, students get a first hand battle experience in the novel George Washington's Socks. For this Novel Study, here are
- comprehension questions for every chapter,
- topic specific student log/journal, which leads to an essay
- name word search and spelling ladders for vocabulary words,
- glossary and two vocabulary worksheets (synonyms/antonyms and words in context).
Lots of teacher directions and suggestions.
A detailed essay assignment using their log is included that leads students through notes, organizing for sub-topics, and creating a five paragraph essay. Student handouts included. This aligns with most 6 + 1 traits.
Answers are not included. No test.
Please see Preview for two sample pages.
