This is a complete packet with all the reading comprehension, responding to text, and language skill activities you could possibly need to teach and explore this fabulous novel.
Includes the following for chapters 11 and 12:
- Pages for literature circles (small groups of students who read the novel together and each complete an assigned role (predictor, summarizer, and connector) or these can be used for all students in a small group to work on collaboratively or for all students in the class to work on independently. A variety of pages are provided- some with a task ONLY and some with a task AND a constructed response question. Use the pages that suit your needs.
- Pages with 5-6 higher order, constructed response questions and space to give written responses (and occasional multiple choice questions). Use in class or for homework as desired.
-A page for making inferences about what the main character is thinking during an event in the story.
- A page that requires students to make inferences about a character's feelings, to look at a situation from that character's perspective and to explain how they would react the situation.
-Leveled question cards- questions of all kinds that you can cut out into cards. They are marked according to difficulty (1 being the easiest and 3 being the most challenging). Use these in small groups or with a whole class to assign specific questions to specific students for them to answer either orally or in writing. You can also use these to have a class competition or small group competitions for points. Detailed instructions for use are included. These are also great as "tickets out the door!!"
-Venn diagrams for students to compare and contrast events and ideas in the chapters.
-A list of possible constructed response test questions for teacher use on informal or formal assessments.
-A page for students to differentiate facts vs. opinions related to the story.
