PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 6 - 8 week novel study will guide students through an imaginative exploration and critical analysis of Norton Juster’s classic, fun-filled tale, The Phantom Tollbooth. Students will be challenged to think deeply about the book’s themes and respond thoughtfully through written work and oral discussions. Their imaginations will be stretched and their critical thinking skills will be developed on a daily basis. The study is divided into four segments: Chapters 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, and 16-20. During each segment, students will explore various aspects of the story through interactive comprehension activities, engaging discussions, and personal applications. After each segment, students will be formally assessed on their comprehension of the plot, character development, themes, and vocabulary. In conclusion, students will demonstrate their cumulative learning by completing and presenting 3 mini-projects of their choice. As students join Milo on his adventure filled with challenges, humor, and curious surprises, they will develop a deeper appreciation for the world around them and a greater sense of value for their learning and education.
