PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This was such a GREAT novel study to accompany my 5th grade social studies unit on the American Revolution. The activities and assessments in this guide are everything you need to conduct a fun & informative novel study chock-full of critical thinking! Included in the 160+ page guide are:

*Materials and instructions for creating student literature folders so that kiddos stay organized
*Patriot's Dictionary with important vocabulary used throughout the novel
*The story's "blurb," with opportunities to make predictions
*Before-reading/After-reading opinion statements, with alternate activity to create a gallery walk of posters with opinion statements
*Response Notebook for students to document ideas, questions, thoughts, etc. on each chapter of the book
*Vocabulary cards for all 12 sections of the novel
*Vocabulary glossaries (with definitions) and a section to document context clues for each of the 12 sections
*Chapter title creations and summaries for each of the 12 sections
*"To the Teacher" sample discussion questions for each of the 12 sections
*Critical thinking reading skills/activities imbedded in each section
*10-question quizzes (multiple choice & short answer) for each of the 12 sections, answer keys included
*Final Project Menu of 6 choices, including a grading rubric
*End-of-Novel-Assessment, including matching, true/false, short answer, essay, & critical thinking questions (answer key included)

I broke the novel into 12 sections. The novel has 14 chapters and an epilogue, but I combined a couple of the shorter chapters. Check out the preview to see ALL of the goodies in Section 1!!! I used this novel with my 5th graders and it was challenging, but totally doable! It would be a great middle school novel, but it is so ENGAGING that my students were hooked from day one, even my below-level readers!
