The Battle of Jericho by Sharon Draper (pgs 1-38 Questions)
All of the assignments for my Battle of Jericho unit were taught to a 9th grade Intensive Reading class, but can be used for other middle or high school grades. Questions focus on reading skills like main idea, compare and contrast, cause and effect, making inferences, drawing conclusions, and text features.
These are not just basic questions about plot! Assignments for this unit are designed to guide reluctant readers through the novel, as well as focus on understanding and make deeper connections with the text.
