Product Description

This is a five part, or module, novel study for Gordon Korman's The Sixth Grade Nickname Game. Each module alternates between multiple choice and short answer questions. There is an answer key as well as a choice of end projects for each students, a rubric, and optional instructions for using this novel study as part of a larger set of literature circles (dividing the book into modules instead of chapters allows it to be used with other books of differing lengths).

Publisher's description of novel: "Jeff Greenbaum and Wiley Adamson — the self-appointed nicknamers of Old Orchard Public School, or OOPS — have been best friends for eleven years. So it stands to reason that they would both fall for the same red-haired girl. Meanwhile their charismatic football-coach-turned-English-teacher, Mr. Huge (Hughes), is in danger of losing his job unless their 6th grade class, a.k.a. the Dim Bulbs, ace their State Reading Assessment. With Jeff and Wiley at each other's throats and the class busy reading everything from Dr. Seuss to War and Peace, it stands to reason that both the nickname tradition and Jeff and Wiley's friendship are threatened."
