This guide was updated and expanded in 2017.
This is a mini-guide (a two-week literature study) for the book titled The Land, by Mildred D. Taylor. The Land is a prequel to Ms. Taylor's Newbery Award winning book, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. Readers meet Cassie Logan (and her family) in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry; The Land tells the story of Cassie's grandfather.
The mini-guide contains vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and an answer key.
This is an interactive guide that enables parents/teachers to facilitate an oral discussion of the book, but it only provides space for one student to complete the fill-in-the-blank activities. If you are interested in using the guide with more than one student, check out the options:
1) Reproducibles (they contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities):
Mini-Guide for Seniors: The Land Reproducibles
a) When you purchase one set of reproducibles, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students.
b) An Answer Key is not provided for the reproducibles; the answers for the activities on the reproducibles are found at the end of the mini-guide.
2) Workbook format:
Mini-Guide for Seniors: The Land Workbook
a) The content of the guide in interactive format and the guide in workbook format is the same; the only difference is spacing.
b) If you purchase the guide in workbook format, you do not need the reproducibles.
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:
