This novel is an excellent source for teaching the persecution of Germans living in the United States during WWI. This is a fun-to-read, multi-generational story of a fictional family spanning three centuries of actual historical events. It is part of the American Adventure Series.
My study guide concentrates on the improvement of comprehension including remembering facts, drawing conclusions, differentiating between fact and opinion, and sequencing. The students have the opportunity to write a narrative from a character's point of view, to complete paragraphs given a topic sentence, to write a news article about an event in the story, and to summarize chapters. There are questions for each chapter and a vocabulary list including page numbers. Please rate this resource. Thanks so much. Ellen Gabor http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Einstein1
