In this novel study, students will focus on common characteristics of level Z books. This includes structure, characters, theme, vocabulary, figurative language, point of view and word choice. Each chapter is outlined with guided reading questions around comprehension, making inferences, citing evidence, author’s craft with regards to tone and mood, and figurative language. ****Newly added are the questions in the form of printable sticky notes. I have found this so helpful for my students who do not 'notice' what I want them to notice in the text. Instead of handing them a questions packet, I add the sticky notes to their books and have them answer them right on the sticky note. It is amazing!
