This 60-page Old Yeller literature unit includes 3-5 comprehension questions, 3-5 analysis questions, and two Frayer Model vocabulary exercises for each chapter. Additionally, this product includes ideas for projects and extensions, and journal questions to use throughout the book.
COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS focus on basic understsanding of the main events in each chapter. Students are also often asked to draw detailed scenes of the book to reinforce and personalize main events.
ANALYSIS/REFLECTION questions for each chapter require students to think beyond plot regurgitation and engage in higher-order thinking.
FRAYER MODEL VOCABULARY practice for each chapter provides students with a meaningful activity to broaden their vocabulary skills.
Teachers can assign PROJECTS AND EXTENSIONS to all students upon finishing the book, or selected topics to gifted or advanced students during reading.
I provided the comprehension and analysis questions in two formats: an extended format for students to answer questions directly on the page; or a condensed format which can be printed and distributed as homework questions, or passed out to students who enter responses in a class journal.
