This thirty-seven page resource for teaching Lois Lowry's 1994 Newbery Medal Winner has two components.
The THINK, WRITE, CREATE portion, based on the higher level thinking skills of Bloom's Taxonomy, offers chapter-by-chapter and whole-book open-ended activities with a range of difficulties from the most basic to challenges for gifted students. The items are designed to spark critical thinking, build vocabulary, and encourage interaction with the story and its characters. Some items require research and/or data collection. Others travel across the curriculum to bring other subject areas into play. This section is purposesly jam-packed to accommodate pick-and-choose options for specific classes and individual students.
The GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS are unique in that they are based on specific novel events or characters rather than a generic design. Each organizer offers opportunities for improving and polishing composition skills.
