Product Description
Ready to start your "The Prince and the Pauper" unit? This anticipation guide (generic enough to work for both the original novel and the play version that's in my Holt textbook) will introduce many of the story's important themes while asking students to make predictions, draw personal connections, and evaluate their ideas after reading. It's a free sample of my "The Prince and the Pauper" Play Activities set.

The anticipation guide contains ten opinion statements about concepts like kindness, leadership, and differences between people - all extremely relevant to characters in "The Prince and the Pauper." Before beginning to read the story, students decide whether or not they agree with each statement, using their own backgrounds as well as their predictions about the story. After reading, I give them time to revisit their predictions and think about whether the story changed their perspectives at all.

The best part is when they get to defend their positions after reading, using details from the story and the connections they've made with their own lives! Each statement is purposely written as an opinion, so students will have to provide lots of facts to convince their classmates that they're right. This activity is guaranteed to stir up some rich post-reading discussion! I hope your students get as much out of it as mine have!
