As seen from the preview, this document has before reading activities which build background knowledge and showcase vocabulary within the each chapter. The during reading section asks students to ask questions while reading. You will notice that it says different things in the during reading section such as read on your own or popcorn read. This allows the students to work freely without teacher direction while the teacher is available to work with other students. The after reading sections consist of reviewing previous chapters and some creative thinking activities.
This book study could easily be done whole class or students could complete the whole things on their own by ignoring the during reading section when it says to read with a partner. Each chapter has rich vocabulary which provides a list of words for students to define using a dictionary, prior knowledge, context clues, or other resources.
