Mildred Taylor's THE WELL, which is a prequel to ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY - gives the reader a look backward into racism in early 1900's in the South. This unit helps students follow the main issues in the story and focuses their attention on specific events.
The novel does not have chapters so I separated it into five (5) parts, using logical breaks in the plot. Included in this study unit are:
- Reading Comprehension & Fact Recall questions (5) per part, plus one Reflective Question for each part,
- Word Study page,
- Word Search and Figurative Language assignment on one page,
- Character Log, one page,
- Essays addressing major word usage in the novel,
- Poetry Connection page,
- Two page basic test with 25 items - True & False; Who Said?, Sequence, and Multiple Choice
Please see Preview for sample of test pages.
