This literature response curriculum is for The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo.
The "Hey" contains activities for students to complete before reading. The "Get It" contains activities for during reading. The "Got It" activities are benchmark products to be completed at the end of the novel. "Good" provides opportunities for those students who wish to further explore the novel.
The beauty of this curriculum rests in its simplicity of format - it's not a bunch of worksheets to run off - and yet, it fosters complex thinking and response to the text.
