PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a novel study journal with 64 higher-order thinking, close reading, TEXT DEPENDENT questions and a differentiated crossword that will thoroughly test your students' comprehension of the beloved children's classic: "The Indian in the Cupboard". It is also a great tool for preparing them for ANY standardized reading test.

Just like so many other teachers out there, you are probably facing the following issues:
1. You want your students to continue to read and enjoy classical literature, but you also need them to prepare for the standardized testing.
2. You want to incorporate close reading in your reading class, but there are not many close reading resources available.
3. You are sick and tired of constant grading!

If these problems sound familiar, take a closer look at this product. It contains:

1. a journal with 64 carefully crafted close reading questions (4 questions per chapter) that will have your students go back to the story over and over again in order to find the right answers.

The questions target all the Common Core standards for reading literature and contain terminology commonly found on standardized reading tests.

2. a differentiated crossword (an easier and harder version) that can be used as a quiz/final assessment

3. eight discussion prompts

4. a two-page explanation and suggestions how to set up your reading groups and how to incorporate this journal in a way that will spare you tons of grading

5. an answer key

6. mini-grading rubric
