This Web Quest style pre-reading activity teaches students about the author, setting, genre, literary terms etc. It also includes an optional paragraph response with two writing topics, and an optional meta-cognition requirement. Suitable to leave for Supply Teachers. A RUBRIC is included for quick and easy completion based marking. It is a fun activity that students enjoy getting into. A great way to start off a new unit, and give yourself time to mark the test from the last unit. Don't forget to book the Computer Lab!

Takes 1 period (60 to 75 minutes). MS Word. Editable.
