PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a complete set of questions (198) to provoke and test students' comprehension when reading the novel by Roald Dahl.

Many are low order questions - focused on reading and basic fact-finding. Some seek opinions from students on action or character, and encourage them to justify those opinions. Others ask them to write short paragraphs describing a specific action, or to write a list based on what they have read. Some questions direct students to find the meanings of words.
The questions provide students with a comprehensive mix of challenges. They also provide excellent opportunities for formative assessment.

I usually give each student a copy of the questions when we begin the novel, and then use as homework, classwork etc.. It gives students a chance to show off their knowledge of the events in the novel. I'm often amazed to rediscover that students love the routine of answering questions in this format. I also use this exercise with weak and ESL students, insisting that they write full sentences as answers.

There are 198 questions in total. It's an 8 page student handout, in Word format, so editable to suit your class. The 10 page answer key is also included.

The preview file contains the questions (and answer key) for Chapters 1 (A Note about Witches) and 2 (My Grandmother). Even if you don't purchase my product, this will give you a useful start to your study of this excellent novel.
