This twenty-two page resource for teaching Bette Greene's 1975 Newbery Honor Book is a series of objective tests that cover the novel as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test. Students will find it necessary to read the material carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on these tests. The material also works nicely as WHOLE-CLASS DISCUSSION GUIDES, SMALL-GROUP or INDEPENDENT READING GUIDES, HOMEWORK, and CONFERENCING TOOLS. The pages offer a convenient MANAGEMENT RESOURCE for programs involving the use of multiple titles.
This material DOES NOT REQUIRE STORY INTREPRETATION nor does it address ELEMENTS OF LITERATURE. Instead, it motivates students to practice thoughtful reading and build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.
FULL ANSWER KEYS and two pages of rationale/teaching suggestions are included. Download the free preview pages for a closer look.
