Looking for an engaging novel study for teens and/or adults? Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is a terrific read!
This novel study includes the following:
* An anticipation guide
* A suggested reading plan
* 16 journal prompts (they could also be used as discussion questions!)
* A grading rubric for the journal prompts
* 3 Common Core based (9-10th grade) activities designed to develop students' skills in analyzing plot/theme, characterization, and author's word choice.
* An answer key for the Common-Core based activities.
I have used The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian to teach both teens and adults; both love it, and this novel study addresses the complex issues in the book.
