Here is a teaching guide that will save you time as you plan for your students to read "Skunk Scout" by Laurence Yep. The guide summarizes the story, lists vocabulary words, and suggests questions for higher level discussion or writing prompts. Examples of reading strategies, skills, and literary devices are annotated: visualization, theme, foreshadowing, context clues, similes, personification, idioms, connections, questioning, problem/climax, characterization, and text features. Cross curricular connections are also suggested.
This is a teaching guide. Comprehension worksheets, activities, and assessments are not included. Higher level discussion/writing prompts are featured. This is a reference tool for the teacher. You will need Adobe installed on your computer to read the files.
