Here is a series of activities for Joyce Hansen's novel "I Thought My Soul Would Rise and Fly," a book in the "Dear America" series. There are comprehension quizzes, characterization activities, setting activities, a plot map, conflict questions, and point of view questions. The majority of the questions focus on reading skills instead of literal comprehension. Students are asked to cite evidence from the text throughout the quizzes, making this a perfect resource for teaching the common core standards. Possible Socratic Seminar ideas are included as well. There is the main PDF of files, then there is another PDF that is portrait orientation to make printing easier, if that's what you like. There is also a PDF that includes the activities in multiple choice form, if that's what you need. You can choose the most appropriate format for your purposes--short answer or multiple choice.
