This zip file includes 20 chapter guides for Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston, and one final reflection worksheet.
The chapter guides are designed to help students slow down and pay attention to what they are reading. Most of the questions asked are factual questions about the events of the novel to help students retain information and detail. However, there are some opportunities for students to write short arguments, make inferences, and analyze symbolism. Every chapter guide has a space for students to write down one comment or question to bring up in class discussion. This helps students come prepared to discuss the book.
The final reflection worksheet will help students think about what they liked and did not like about the novel. Students are also given an opportunity to reflect on why the novel is important and what they can learn about life from reading this novel. Then, students are given the opportunity to step into the main character's shoes.
These assignments are great for supporting reading comprehension, and critical thinking.
