Two sets of comprehension questions to be used when reading the novel.
The first set of questions are basic. Students who complete these will have a good understanding of what happens and who's who in the novel.
The more comprehensive detailed reading questions are designed to stimulate deeper analysis.
Why two sets?
1. My primary need for differentiated activities is for when I'm teaching mixed ability groups. The basic questions are designed for weaker students, who need to come to grips with plot and character, but who may struggle with higher-order tasks.
2. How are you studying the novel? Are you doing a serious in-depth study of the novel, or it is part of a reading list where students need only grasp the gist?
3. Use the detailed questions when first studying the novel (teacher guided). Use the basic questions as a refresher course or for revision before a final exam.
There are 99 questions in the First Reading/Basic Questions set. The Detailed Reading Questions total is 241. The answer keys for both sets of questions are included. It's a 27 page handout, in Word format, so editable to suit your needs.
The preview file includes all questions for Chapter 1 (10 + 29). This will give you a good start with your work on the novel.
