Product Description
The Westing Game is one of my favorite novels to teach - besides the rich vocabulary, unique plot and creative characters, the students always love it!

Because the novel is based on a mystery, I knew I wanted a "detective book" for my students to use as they read to help them become immersed in the detective genre.

This Detective Log I created can be used to give easy, formative checks throughout the novel. I include a cover page where students can take on a character's role from the novel, Suspects Pages where students can record notes about the characters, and finally Chapter Logs where students include brief summaries and record "clues."

I use this novel to focus on understanding character reactions to plot (RL 6.3) and tone (RL 6.4), therefore I also include a column for students to analyze what characters say versus what they actually mean.

The easy-to-use Microsoft Format makes this easy to alter to fit your own classroom goals. I've always worked with the formatting so that this can be printed (front to back) on four sheets of paper/student

BONUS - I included a Teacher's Guide with (1) the exact standards I use this for and how students demonstrate mastery of the standards and (2) different suggestions/accomodations for incorporating this into your classroom
