Looking for a classic, dynamic, new-to-them text? Short on time? George MacDonald's 1904 short story/novella is included here with integrated study questions - many aligned to 6th grade common core standards. (The story is chunked so that many pages could be used as stand-alone passage assessments with 2-5 corresponding questions apiece. Some pages will also feature a question for which reading of prior pages is necessary.) This resource can be used in a variety of settings: as independent study, in a home school co-op group, or as homework following classroom read-aloud sessions. (Fans of C.S. Lewis may be particularly interested in introducing their students to MacDonald, whose work greatly influenced Lewis's writings.)
Over 90 study questions for 39 pages of text! Questions focus on language usage, story elements, figurative language, providing evidence for inferences, etc.
