This is a 10-question anticipation guide based on Gary Paulsen's historical fiction novel Soldier's Heart. It will help students use prior knowledge and knowledge of US history to make predictions before they begin reading, which will create interest and aid comprehension.
This one-page activity contains ten statements with which students may agree or disagree, and I highly recommend letting students share and defend their answers, even before reading! This way they are more invested in their answers and will read carefully to look for confirmation. There are columns for before-reading predictions and after-reading checks, as well as space for students' own predictions.
This is a great introduction activity for a novel unit!
