World War II Home Front novel unit
Here is a series of activities for Richard Peck's novel "On the Wings of Heroes". There are comprehension quizzes, characterization activities, setting activities, a plot map, conflict questions, and point of view questions. The majority of the questions focus on reading skills instead of literal comprehension. Students are asked to cite evidence from the text throughout the quizzes, making this a perfect resource for teaching the common core standards. This has been updated to include possible Socratic Seminar topics.
There is also a 25-question multiple choice test included. This takes the information from some of the unit pages and puts them into multiple choice questions, offering teachers an option for quicker grading.
