This resource provides you with 15 statements to get students thinking. Before reading the novel, students should indicate their response with a number system: 1= strongly agree, 2= agree somewhat, 3=disagree somewhat, 4= strongly disagree. You can then have students share their responses in pairs, small groups, or as a whole class. At the end of the discussion, have students respond to the two prompts on the back of the paper. Finally, at the end of the novel, have students fill out the survey again to compare/contrast their responses.
