These questions have been created for all chapters in the novel The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. They were developed to help students think critically about the reading in small group literature circle guides. Each section has 5-6 questions and some long chapters have been divided to facilitate for greater discussion. The question was developed with the standard Scholastic Publishing School copy, and matches to an older version, this is important since I broke up chapters by page numbers. Questions activate prior knowledge, ask for inferences, descriptions, predictions and other higher level thinking thinking skills.
