This set of dialectical-entry (or double-entry) journals asks key questions about big ideas in each chapter. Students must answer the question by finding two quotes that answer the question, then explain how each quote proves that point.
The question roots span multiple standards. For chapters 25-31, students can create their own focuses by using question stems. Or, as an alternate assignment and to change things up, students can write questions for each chapter. Teachers can then use these questions for class quizzes (it's such fun to watch students recognize their questions in Kahoot or Plickers).
