Product Description
My twenty-five page literature unit starts with an Internet investigation of the American Kennel Club�s website. Students find its �Pet Promise� page and discuss this set of rules for responsible pet ownership to determine why each one is necessary.

This book consists of fifteen chapters. Students read two chapters at a time except for the final chapter. Each pair of chapters is accompanied by two worksheets. On the first worksheet, students match vocabulary words to their definitions and discuss a pre-reading question designed to get them thinking about what might happen. The second worksheet presents comprehension questions whose answers must be written in complete sentence form. (To assist with this, many answers have already been started and students simply complete them.) These questions are designed to work at two different levels. Some �stay on the surface�. The student need only recall a detail or reread a paragraph to quickly answer them. The second type of question requires the reader to �dig deeper�. They may have to see a pattern, make a logical deduction, or connect cause and effect before writing their response.

A third type of question is presented at the bottom of the second page. In discussion with other readers, students must �go beyond the text� to figure out character motivations, predict potential outcomes, or draw conclusions.

After reading the book, additional comprehension worksheets follow. Emphasizing cause-and-effect, students must connect outcomes with the events that caused them on the first page. The next three pages involve summarizing the main idea. Students first decide which one sentence summary matches which of the first eleven chapters. On the next two pages, students are taught how to create such summaries for the last four chapters. The next page requires students to order fourteen important events in the story. Finally, students must rewrite colloquial phrases taken from the story in correct English. Answer keys are provided at the end of the unit for every page.

This literature unit is intended to promote strong comprehension skills, strengthen vocabulary, and increase enjoyment of this children�s literature classic.
