The following 10-page document is a study guide with comprehension questions to actively guide a reader through Ned Vizzini's 2006 novel "It's Kind of a Funny Story." The study guide or packet is broken down into 10 pages and sections of 5 chapters per page. There are 100+ questions total that focus readers to analyze the work's characterization (especially indirect characterization and dynamic characterization), conflict (central and internal), dialogue, figurative language, flashbacks, inferences, motifs, plot structure, setting, the author's style, and symbolism. The packet also includes reader response questions that ask students to make predictions, infer Vizzini's choices, and support their assertions with evidence from the text.
