Imagine spending a year of your life bedridden.
That's exactly what happens to Ruthie in Lucky Broken Girl. As a Cuban immigrant, she already feels left out - put in the "dumb" class because of her language deficiency. But when a car accident lands Ruthie in her bed for almost a full year, she is forced to think about things like suffering, forgiveness, and how to start over. This is a book your students will love! So get it into their hands now.
This complete set of materials features a Reading Road Map for students. With Reading Road Maps, a student can reap the benefits of having an “expert reader” demonstrate good comprehension methods and questioning strategies. Reading road maps are designed to help students read independently by having each reader interact with the text while reading. The road maps utilize specific skills for high-level reading, such as inferring, predicting, summarizing, and visualizing. At times, the road map “models” good comprehension strategies by commenting on elements in the book using proven methods for comprehension. Additionally, students are able to self-select a book and read at their own pace while being held accountable for their comprehension.
The materials in this novel study allow teachers to evaluate student comprehension and progress on a specific text. The questions are not general (who is the main character) but focus on precise events, characters, conflicts, plots, and thematic issues.
This unique resource offers almost 80 pages of materials to help kids read independently and comprehend text using a variety of skills. It includes: 2 pre-reading activities, chapter-by-chapter text-related questions, 2-3 differentiated extension activities for each section, 10 task cards, a set of vocabulary words with definitions and page numbers, 5 engaging vocabulary activities, 3 unique culminating projects with rubrics, and a multiple-choice and short answer quiz (with answers). AND if that weren't enough, it's pretty to look at too!
Perfect for grades 6-9, ELL students, or struggling readers. Can be used with individual students, whole-class instruction, or in conjunction with literature circles.
