This forty-seven resource for teaching Ben Mikaelsen's popular novel has two components.
The THINK, WRITE, CREATE section offers a series of open-ended activities based on the higher level thinking skills of Bloom's Taxonomy. The items are organized as a section of chapter-by-chapter activities and a second group of whole-book, post-reading challenges. Difficulty levels are varied to accommodate the needs of individual students including the gifted. Elements of literature and vocabulary building are targeted in many of these activities.
Answer keys for those items requiring a specific answer are included.
The second component is a group of 14 GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS that spring from a specific story event, idea, character, or element of literature illustrated in the story. Each topic offers opportunity for improving and polishing composition skills.
The activities and ideas in this resource align to a variety of CCSS ELA skills for Literature, Language, and Writing.
