These activities are designed to help assess students understanding of their independent reading. The activities develop a deeper understanding on the concepts of point of view, historical significance, plot and conflict. They can also be used with any novel unit or study of literature. Each worksheet includes pertinent vocabulary and terms, as well as an enriching activity that engages the student and allows them to apply the knowledge gathered during their independent reading. You may choose to give students all the activities or choose different activities for different assignments.
