This novel study has been designed to take less class time than other units that can be found on "Teachers Pay Teachers" and, therefore, may feel less exhaustive.
It can also be useful in a homeschool classroom with more student directed learning.
Included as a bonus with this brief novel study is a 22 page collection of comprehension and discussion questions for the rest of the "Maze Runner" series including "The Scorch Trials," "The Death Cure," and "The Kill Zone."
