If you like my free worksheet for chapters 1-3, this is the perfect resource for you after studying the classic Beowulf!
This is 24 pages of over 100 chronological questions WITH ANSWERS about John Gardner's Grendel. The questions range from basic plot summary fill-in-the-blank to creative responses to higher level Bloom's Taxonomy questions.
I've worked a long time to get this right, but my students have truly reaped the benefits! The reading strategies employed here are as follows: questioning, clarifying, visualizing, and inferring. Students are guided in the right direction as they are prompted to use each strategy. If used correctly, this resource will pinpoint exactly which section of the text is troublesome for your students. It also gives them a chance to interact with the text in their own creative ways.
