These homework assignments are originally part of our full The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time unit. We decided to sell this component separately and it includes the 27 page unit for 15 individual homework assignments for Curious Incident. Certain homework assignments target key important chapters, while other assignments review themes and motifs after they have been fully developed with close readings of the text.
Most importantly students continue to practice their close reading skills as every homework assignment requires students to return to the text to provide detailed examples or direct quotes to support their ideas and opinions.
