This is teaching materials for a novel that would be considered untraditional. The Chapter worksheet included vocabulary acquisition, critical thinking questions, and recall or comprehension questions on one assignment. These questions come in the forms of a mixture of matching, short answer, and multiple-choice.

NOTE: I have decided to include the Word Documents that the PDFs are created from so that if you would like to customize the unit for your classroom you can. However, I have used formatting and custom fonts that are not standard with many versions of Microsoft office. This may mean that opening them with a different version of office or without the same fonts installed will throw the formatting off. If so it may take some work to adapt them in your class. I am including them as an extra and would ask that I am not rated on the usability of the Word Docs. Since they are not the finished product, but an extra.
