Product Description
The Whipping Boy Novel Study Teaching Gide is a 97-page resource with 8 components for teaching Sid Fleischman's 1987 Newbery Medal Winner.

Chapter Summaries
(1)The detailed CHAPTER SUMMARIES, written in bulleted format for easy reference, provide a quick method for becoming familiar with the material when time is limited and for refreshing memory when using the novel from year to year.

Prereading Activities
(2)PREREADING ACTIVITIES include a graphic organizer, discussion and research topics, and a bulletin board idea.

Vocabulary Study
(3)In the VOCABULARY section are word lists with definitions, dictionary activities, and usage worksheets.

Short Answer Questions
(4)The chapter-by-chapter SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS can be put to use in a variety of ways including homework reading guides. The questions require detailed, FACTUAL responses.

Objective Tests
(5)The series of OBJECTIVE TESTS, which cover the novel as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test, DO NOT REQUIRE STORY INTERPRETATION, but they do check for basic story comprehension. Students will find it necessary to read the material carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on these tests. The goal of this component is to build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills. Rather than chapter quizzes, these pages can take on the roles of study and review guides for individual students or groups.

Thinking and Writing Skills
(6)The activities in THINK, WRITE, CREATE, both chapter-by-chapter and whole book, require
students to engage the HIGHER LEVEL THINKING SKILLS of Bloom's Taxonomy. These open-ended activities cover a range of difficulties from basic to challenges for gifted students. The items are designed to spark divergent, creative, and speculative thinking, build vocabulary, inspire research, and encourage student interaction with the story and its characters.

Graphic Organizers for Writing
(7)The GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS for writing are based on specific novel events or characters rather than a standard design. Each one offers opportunities for practicing and improving writing skills.

Answer Keys
(8)Full ANSWER KEYS are included for questions requiring a specific response as well as suggested responses for some of the Think, Write, Create prompts.
