Adamo's novel of a young boy's harsh life in Pakistan catches young readers' attention. Focus questions for this Novel Study cover every chapter. Plus there are graphic organizers and graphic charts specifically designed for this novel that help support their curiosity and add to their understanding of the plight of young people like Iqbal. No answers provided for these questions.
I also include some historical background for teachers to review with students.
The questions themselves are in two different formats: one for students to write answers directly on the question sheet; the other is spaced so students must answer on their own paper (and save on copier paper.)
There is a glossary, a vocabulary and name puzzle
A Quiz for Ch. 1 to 6 and an all novel TEST are included WITH ANSWER KEYS.
