In this packet, you will find three resources for Leon Tillage’s Leon’s Story, his oral history put to print: 1) detailed close-reading questions, which students may use alone or in pairs/small groups, to practice skimming and scanning for information; 2) detailed and informative chapter summaries of Leon’s Story; 3) a thirty-five question follow-up reading assessment complete with an answer key.
NOTE: Try reading this as a precursor to our reading of Mildred D. Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and William H. Armstrong’s Sounder. It is a wonderful nonfiction complement to these novels. The students’ eyes are riveted to these pages, and they are moved to share their opinions and thoughts throughout the discussions. I have never heard a student complain about this character versus society unit.
