Here is the classic novel, The Chocolate War, edited so younger readers can be introduced to a book with great ideas, without being subjected to the inapropriate content in the original novel.
This product contains the entire story (minus the controversial scenes and vulgar language), comprehension questions and answer key, and a project idea.
This activity can be done individually, in partners, in literature circles, on the computer, or in a large group.
Because the book’s setting jumps around, each chapter is accompanied by a picture helping the reader determine setting.
This product also comes with a suggested reading timeline.
Basically, passages are taken directly from the original novel. They have been modified for an intended younger audience. Many passages have been deleted or shortened.
The purpose of this instructional piece is to be able to read the basis of this famous novel, while leaving out the reasons it became a “banned book”.
