This study guide for Les Miserables will help your students critically read and respond to the text. Students answer critical questions in the text by highlighting the answers to questions and commenting on those answers to further explain them. They also identify key vocabulary words in the text using a bookmark, also included with the handouts. Students look for literary elements, as well as factual information, allowing them to process the text as they read. You can use this study guide with the unabridged or abridged version of the text (take out the questions related to the companion guide if using the abridged version). A rubric for grading the finished book and student annotations is also included with the handouts.
