The Pearl is a novel about a family who finds a very valuable pearl in the ocean and the struggles of greed and evilness they must endure while they try to sell it.

As a public high school English teacher, the biggest challenge I have is getting students to read in class or at home. Put a book or short story in front of them, they'll look at it for a few seconds and start day dreaming...

Until I stumbled upon something magnificent. Teenagers like accomplishment. These worksheets ask questions while the reader reads. Every couple of sentences, there's another question in true or false, fill in the blank, define, multiple choice formats. As the student reads, boom, another question. They answer it and continue reading. Before you know it, they have finished reading the story and completed all questions for further lessons/discussions.

These worksheets are great for daily lessons, test/quiz grades, extra credit, homework, group work (in pairs of two), substitute teacher lessons, emergency lesson plans, great for ESOL or however you can imagine.

FREE COMPLETE SAMPLE WITH KEY PROVIDED FOR "THE MAN TO SEND RAIN CLOUDS". Just search my other downloads for the free full lesson. If you like the full free sample, you will love this one!

This lesson is meant to help students focus on the reading while answering simple questions to keep them on track and focused. (check out my feedback for outstanding results).
