These reading questions cover every chapter (21 chapters total) in THE WITCH OF BLACKBIRD POND. There is at least one question for each chapter with a few chapters having two. There are 24 questions total. The questions assess the students' comprehension of the story (chapter) as well as require them to predict, explain, and analyze (depending on the question).
These questions were completed at the beginning of the class period, followed by a class discussion of the answers.Students were expected to correct any incorrect answers. This took between 10 and 20 minutes.
These questions may also be assigned for homework or given to the students as a study guide for an exam.
WHY NO ANSWER KEY: Because I used this as a warm-up activity and obviously had already read the book, I had no need for an answer key as the answers would come up in the discussion. Please use this activity in whatever way suits your classroom and students, but please understand that if your use of this resource requires an answer key (such as self-directed peer correction), it would be your responsibility to create it.
