This study guide was created to accompany the reading of The Black Pearl by Scott O'Dell. It focuses on language usage, vocabulary, imagery, and more. This guide can be used for independent reading, small group, or whole group. It includes a mid-book quiz as well as final comprehension assessment. I used this with extra supports for my 4th grade special education students to help guide them through a rich text, but this can be used through middle school with fewer supports.
