Product Description
This unit includes 6 multiple-choice quizzes, 4 rubrics for end-of-the-book projects, and discussion questions for small group. This is an awesome book that my 8th graders love. It is a story about a 14 year old boy living in Comfort, Texas, who has a crazy, controlling-mother, an ex-con, alcoholic father. The boy enters a competition in sportswriting, newswriting, and poetry to win money for an escape to Dallas. Carolee Dean does a beautiful job of bringing poetry into the story. My students can't put it down!
