Loser is another great story by Jerry Spinelli about a boy named Donald Zinkoff, who is different from the other boys and girls. He is labelled a "loser" by his classmates because he is clumsy, among other things. He finally gets accepted for who he really is by the end of the story.
This resource includes activities for students to recall the setting, characters, plot and themes.
Students will also have an opportunity to design a new novel cover, write acrostics, learn new vocabulary, create a bookmark, and a storyboard, compare Donald's teachers and create a time line of important events.
