The Literature for Learning Standards-Based Study Guide was developed to help bring back the joy of reading novels into the classroom. This study guide uses an entire novel rather than an abridged version to teach students the fundamentals of reading, writing, and grammar as a primary or secondary source for learning many of the content standards in language arts. This study guide provides practice activities to help students improve reading comprehension skills, increase vocabulary, develop essay organizational and writing skills, and improve spelling, grammar, and punctuation skills within the context of the novel. The format of the study guide is modeled after the types of questions commonly found on standardized tests. This format is stylized in a comparable layout and contains similar terminology used in state and national standardized tests so that students become familiar with the types of questions on which they will be tested, based on their grade-level standards.
