My reluctant readers have LOVED this novel, and have been excitedly reading it. I designed these reflection questions and vocabulary grids to guide discussions while not quashing their excitement about reading. The packet is divided into sections (chapters 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-13, and 14-18). Each section encourages higher level thinking about literary elements such as turning points, character traits, and authors craft as well as focusing on three high-leverage vocabulary words. I have included sentence frames for language learners and reluctant writers to jump-start student responses.
