This award-winning novel by Rita Williams-Garcia is an outstanding example of high-interest complex text. This unit is aligned with ELA Standards that require students of all reading levels to think on a deeper level. Students are held accountable for deep thinking and sustained engagement through chapter by chapter questions, diagrams, and analyses. The thorough answer key enables the teacher to hold students accountable for high-quality thinking and engagement whether in book groups, for independent book studies, classwork, or homework. This standard edition is complete with questioning (and answer keys) on all 44 chapters, but does not include the writing extension assignments, vocabulary support and suggested strategies for differentiating this novel study with students of varying reading levels.
