Tony Abbot's first "Droon" novel will have your students captivated, and the CCSS-aligned, rigorous, widely varied questions and graphic organizers will have you smiling! (CCSS alignment provided for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.)
Each chapter has a before, during, and after question section, along with vocabulary builders and graphic organizers to boost critical thinking and reading strategy skills! The 21 pages of student work are followed by a very thorough answer key, which provides multiple possible responses for more interpretive questions, text citations, and teaching suggestions. A novel study skill recording sheet is included as well, to help you guide your reading group to skill mastery! A "Beyond the Book" letter writing activity is included at the end of the novel study, and a 3-2-1 grading rubric makes it easy to assess students' learning.
Perfect for guided reading, literature circles, book clubs, independent reading - even homework! Students LOVE The Secrets of Droon series, and you will love the rigor and structure that this novel study will bring to any lesson. Happy reading!
