This reading guide is divided into groups of 2 chapters. Each group of chapters has a vocabulary table (some words have been pre-selected) asking for definition and a new sentence using the words. Each group of chapters also has several comprehension questions (some questions are text-dependent, while other questions require students to make inferences, predictions, and think much deeper). This packet also includes several reading strategies within each group of chapters (compare/contrast, character trait, sequencing). The students are also asked to write a "swift summary" (a shorted summary) of what the chapter groups.
