This is an updated version of the novel study guide and one of the only units available on the Internet. I have modified some of the vocabulary pages and made corrections on the comprehension questions.
This study guide for The Girl Who Owned a City addresses comprehension, vocabulary, and writing skills. Students are also required to design and build a city of their own. The students will have the opportunity to delve deeper into character development. There is also a list of response questions that can be used with any class novel. The vocabulary pages can be used at any time at the discretion of the teacher. Thanks.
