This 25 page document is a guide for One Crazy Summer, a wonderful novel that had recently won many awards. It is aligned with the Common Core and specific learning objectives are included.
The guide breaks One Crazy Summer into 8 different sections. Vocabulary words and Literature Circle discussion questions are provided with each. Whether your whole class is reading this book, or just one small group, this guide will provide useful materials for you and your students.
One of the provided materials is a Vocabulary Notebook. When copied and folded, it becomes a neatly formatted booklet where students can define and interact with new terms.
A page of Discussion Questions is provided for each section of the reading. These questions introduce and have students interact with character development, figurative language, conflict, and plot, as well as many other comprehension skills. These questions are designed to be material for Lit Circles to go over, but they could be used in the whole group setting, as well.
