PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Listening was important to the slaves, and Gloria Whelan created the book The Listeners (Illustrated by Mike Benny) to teach about slave children listening at the manor's windows at night and being their families' "reporters."

The illustrations are terrific and though the story was no doubt created for younger readers, it is a terrific read-aloud for upper grades too as the interest level is very high. I wrote the study questions, quiz, and other activities with 4h, 5th, 6th in mind, but middle school students would love it as well.

Included are:

- Board pages for display using a document camera, overhead projector, or attachable to smart boards,
- Student pages that mirror the board pages, but with room to write responses
- A glossary page requiring students to match terms with definitions, and an accompanying spelling ladder, a low key approach to spelling,
- Character Log,
- Focus Questions (one page) asking students to respond to key ideas
- Quiz (one page) with 7 True/False and 5 multiple choice questions.

ANSWERS INCLUDED
