This lit log (novel study) by MrsDsEducationalTools is for The Usual Suspects, a realistic fiction by Maurice Broaddus.

Broaddus honestly and cleverly depicts how students in a middle school Special Ed classroom perceive themselves and others. The book is written from the point of view of a middle school boy. It is an excellent read for Special Ed students, but also is an excellent read for other middle school-aged students and educators.

Themes in the book are: school issues, bullying, friendship, family, Special Ed, prejudices and discrimination, social issues, firearms, multicultural, and racism.

Focus skills in the lit log are:

* using text to explain, draw inferences, cite evidence

* determining theme, central idea, summarizing

* describing, comparing, contrasting, analyzing characters, setting, events

* using text to determine meaning of words/phrases

* describing, explain, analyzing points of view.

9.00This lit log can be used for direct reading instruction (guided reading, novel study, literature circle, close reading) or for a guide for a read aloud.

I hope you and your students enjoy reading this book and that this lit log is helpful.
