**New*** We just recently added reading signposts handouts to accompany this story. Based on the book Notice and Note by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst, these handouts and charts will help your students become better readers! You can use these handouts with this story and with every novel and story you teach!
This is a game changer for the way you teach close reading. Included is a teacher packet and a student packet with handouts that explain the six "signposts" of reading. Handouts are also included for you to find the signposts in "Rogue Wave". Answer keys are included in the teacher packet. We guarantee you're going to LOVE this, and you will be able to use these handouts with every other story and novel you read all year!
