PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a complete set of questions (172) to provoke and test students' comprehension when reading the first Theodore Boone novel.

These questions are focused on reading comprehension and fact-finding. Many are short answer questions. Others ask students to explain terms or action by writing a short expository paragraph. Some questions seek opinions from students on action or character, and encourage them to justify those opinions. A few questions require dictionary work.

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 understanding and 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.
I think I've covered the main points of interest in each chapter, so I'm quite happy to assign students the task of reading independently, and use their answers to check that the work has been done.

There are 172 questions in total. It's a 7 page student handout. (There are no spaces for answers.) The document is in Word format, so editable to suit your class. The 10 page answer key is also included.

The preview file contains the questions (and answers) for Chapters 1 and 2. Even if you don't purchase my product, this will give you a useful start to your study of this excellent young adult novel.
