This guide was updated and expanded in May of 2017.
This is a mini-guide workbook (a two-week literature study) for the book titled Crispin -- The Cross of Lead, by Avi. In this book, a poor boy named Crispin is persecuted in 14th century England.
The mini-guide contains vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and an answer key. A Glossary is included in one edition of the book, but not in another so a Glossary is included at the end of this guide. Sentences, location descriptions, Word Lists, and a Sentence List are also included to enable readers of any edition to use this guide.
There is room for students to write answers in this workbook format of the guide. The guide is also available in interactive format (space is not provided for students to write all of the answers):
Mini-Guide for Middlers: Crispin -- The Cross of Lead Interactive
NOTE: The content of the guide in interactive format and in workbook format is the same; the only difference is spacing.
Mini-guides were originally designed for homeschoolers; they are also used in schools and co-ops. For more information about Mini-Guides, check the mini-guide page of the CNS website:
