Sounder by William H. Armstrong
Sounder Chapter Summaries and Objective Tests is a 27-page, two component resource for teaching William H. Armstrong's 1970 Newbery Medal Winner.
Detailed CHAPTER SUMMARIES are presented in bulleted format for quick reference. These synopses are useful for quickly becoming familiar with a title when time is limited or for refreshing memory when using the title from year to year.
The OBJECTIVE TESTS, which cover the novel chapter-by-chapter and as a whole book test, DO NOT REQUIRE STORY INTERPRETATION, but rather check for basic story comprehension. Students must read carefully and thoroughly for FACUTAL CONTENT to score well on these quizzes.
The goal of this component is to build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.
These pages can also serve as whole-class discussion guides, small-group or independent reading guides, homework, and conferencing tools. They are a valuable resource for managing a reading program that involves the use of multiple titles.
Full answer keys are included.
