This novel study for Schooled includes text based chapter questions, two before-reading activities, three key idea and detail activities, two context clues activities, four inferencing activities, and a review card game. All of the questions and activities are written specifically for this novel.

There is one page of text dependent questions for every two chapters for Gordon Korman's Schooled, a total of sixteen pages of chapter questions. Each page has eight questions including key idea and detail questions, context clues questions, and inferencing questions with lines for students' answers. These can be used for interactive notebook pages or for chapter assessments.

The before-reading activities include one about the time period, the sixties, and one about the characters in the novel.

The key idea and detail activity sheets include a character map, a setting activity, and a plot activity.

The two context clues activities involve locating context clues, choosing the best definitions, and defining vocabulary that is unique to the story.

The four inferencing activities are: Making Inferences from Evidence, an Inference Chart, Inferring Character Traits, and Making Inferences about Theme.

The I Have . . . Who Has . . ? activity is a fun, whole-class activity for reviewing the details of the story after reading.

This novel study supports a number of the Reading: Literature standards, especially those involving using text-based evidence, determining main ideas and details, using context clues, and making inferences.
