I created this guide for the novel A Long Way Gone to be something other than a workbook of comprehension questions. I wanted students to relate to and understand Ishmael as they went through his journey. After studying multiple reading strategies and going to professional development, I designed this guide. There are reading strategies for every chapter such as question matrix, double entry journals, vocab o gram, concept circles, wordstorming, facts & questions ladder, portable word wall, point of view guide, spawn, reading notations, somebody wanted but so, 321, frayer model and many more. This keeps students engaged and relates the novel to their life. It uses multiple learning styles. I personally spent a lot of time on it and LOVE it!
I have now added an updated EXTRA student guide to this that is different with questions geared more towards the Common Core for higher level thinking and the use of evidence from the novel. I decided not to put this separate but add it in for FREE.
