This Word document includes questions that students can discuss and/or write answers to as they read the novel 'Hatchet.' These questions are designed to build students' understanding of the novel's vocabulary, plot, characterisation, ideas/themes and literary techniques. They will practise clarifying, summarising and predicting. Several 'true or false' questions that require students to locate appropriate evidence to justify their interpretations are included. A number of open-ended questions as well as several optional extension questions have been included to provide advanced students with an extra challenge. This is suitable for Year 7 students.
