This is a comprehensive unit that includes activities for each chapter to assess comprehension of this wonderful book. It was written for my 6th grade Special Education Reading class but could be used for grades 5-8. The activities include a variety of vocabulary, comprehension (multiple choice and short answer), fluency, and written expression assessments. Cause and effect, summarization, question generating and author's purpose are just some of the skill building activities included. This is a book that keeps a student engaged and I diversified the assignments so that the homework and in class activities accomplished the same goal. Cheers!
