Rather than have students answer questions, have them create them!
These student study guides are made for students to fill out as they read. Each study guide aligns with the Minnesota State Standards for each grade 5-8, and the Standards are listed in the Rubric on the Second Page.
You can either give each student one for each chapter, assign each student a specific chapter, or some other creative way of assigning the chapters.
Included in the zip file are a PDF copy and an editable word document for grades 5-8. There is also a generic study guide that I use to ease the students into the process. It is aligned with many standards but is not grade specific.
