Product Description
Son Novel Study Discussion & Activity Guide

The novel study for Lois Lowry’s novel, Son, includes a Discussion and Activity Guide, accompanying PowerPoint Presentation, a Literary Log for students, and bookmarks. The Discussion and Activity Guide is comprised of questions and prompts for each chapter and offers teaching suggestions, vocabulary, and prompts for students with suggestions for a variety of ways in which students might respond to these prompts: Teacher-Led Discussion, Pair-Share, Write-Pair-Share-Class-Share, and Individual Student Response. Prompts are designed to increase the relevancy of the novel and facilitate critical thinking. Many of the prompts could be used for longer writing pieces or mini-projects.

Students like to talk and this guide engages and encourages discussion. It can be used with the whole class, small groups, individual students, or for teachers who are reading Son aloud to students.

An accompanying PowerPoint Presentation facilitates student activities and can be utilized by teachers or students. The Literary Log for students includes all the prompts and activities in both the Discussion and Activity Guide and PowerPoint Presentation. Graphics on both the PowerPoint slides and the Literary Log serve as visual clues; works especially well with students whose first language is not English. The Literary Log for Son can be used by a whole class as well as small groups of students or individual students reading Son independently. Reproducible bookmarks can be used to discuss bookmark quotes, form groups, or simply keep students’ place in the novel.
