Product Description
In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™ Set, we combine 3 of our historical stories novel study guides for grades 9-12.

Take a Peek Inside:

Each guide divides the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every chapter, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text.

About Angela's Ashes:

Angela's Ashes is a Pulitzer Prize winning memoir about the author's own childhood and young adulthood. Frank — the eldest son of Malachy and Angela McCourt — vividly describes the hardships endured by his family. First living in Brooklyn, the family moves back to Ireland after the death of Frank's sister Margaret. There, the family lives in poverty, as Frank's father spends all the welfare money, leaving little for food and clothes. Frank's father finally gets work in England, but neglects to send money home to his struggling family, leaving Frank to support them. The story continues with Frank searching tirelessly for a job, settling in at the post office. Eventually, Frank is able to earn enough money to return to America, hoping to start a new life.

About The Grapes of Wrath:

The Grapes of Wrath is a Pulitzer Prize winning story about an impoverished family making their way to California in hopes of a better future. Set in the Great Depression, the Joad family travel from Oklahoma to California after their farm is destroyed in the Dust Bowl. Along the way, the family meets others on their way to California. While talking to those coming back from California, the Joad's are forced to confront the possibility that their lives may not be bettered by going to California. Aware that nothing remains for them in Oklahoma, the family continue on. Reaching California, the family is met with hard labor, unions, protests, and finally murder. The Grapes of Wrath is a celebrated classic of modern American literature.

About The Good Earth:

The Good Earth is a Pulitzer Prize winning story about family life in a Chinese village before World War II. Wang Lung and his new wife O-Lan buy land from the Hwang family in the hopes of starting a modest farm. During this time, O-Lan gives birth to three sons and three daughters. The first daughter becomes mentally handicapped due to severe malnutrition and famine, causing O-Lan to kill the second daughter and sell the third to a merchant. Famine and drought force the family to leave for a large city in the South to find work. Arriving in the city, Wang Lung finds a job pulling a rickshaw, while his family turns to begging. Things get better when armies approach the city and a food riot erupts. Wang Lung receives enough money to return home and have a prosperous life.
