PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

42 activities/questions in total (18 activities/questions, but with multiple parts). Every activity uses higher order thinking skills to really stretch your students. It is appropriate for students from Years 3-6.

I designed this series of activities for Grade 3 and 4 classes at my school, including a gifted and talented class. The activities are based on the 18 components of The Williams Model, which is a curriculum model designed for gifted students. The activities could be used as independent or group tasks. They could also be used in novel study groups/literature circles. The activities also appeal to different learning styles. My students loved working on these activities when I used them in class- I hope you enjoy using them too!

I do not include spaces for answers, as this allows you to differentiate... you might expect a 1 sentence answer from your lowest group of students, and a whole essay on the same question from your top group of students, including evidence/quotes from the text. It gives you the flexibility to use the questions how you choose. In fact, it also allows you to designate (or let the students choose) which questions are answered by which students.

NOTE: I have a wide range of HIGHER ORDER THINKING novel studies for sale- check out all my titles at my store! They are my best-sellers, as I believe they genuinely fill a need in the market- I actually began making them because I couldn't find anything like them already on the market. I got sick of having to use literature studies that involved really basic types of questioning, and just didn't challenge or extend students' thinking and understanding at all. These novel studies take me a lot of time and careful thought to create- you are truly getting a lot of value for money! I hope you find them as helpful and enjoyable to use as my previous customers have!
