Dexter the Tough (DRA 40, Guided Reading Q) Novel Guide
This 11 Page Guide Includes:
*A guide with 1-3 activities for all nineteen chapters in this book. Activities include filling out a Word Map, Character Chart, or a Reading Response.
Reading responses should be recorded in a student journal or on a separate piece of paper. Reading response questions include a variety of skill and strategies prompts (genre, characterization, predicting, visualizing, summarizing, etc) that directly apply to the chapter being read.
*Character Chart where students can list the name of each character as they are introduced in the story and record important details.
*Word Map that allows students to focus on 2-4 words every chapter, recording any context clues and the definition of each word.
This guide can be used in a variety of different ways. If this is being used with a higher group, students can complete a chapter at a time independently and bring their completed guides with them during group time for discussion. When used with a lower group, the guide can be completed together during group time.
