Everybody thinks Gary's grampa died in a fishing accident. But from a note Grampa left, Gary suspects he was murdered. The note tells of a million dollars in gold hidden in a cave and an old Indian curse promising that anyone who touches it will die! Gary and his friend Brian are sure that if they find the gold, they will also find Grampa's killer. But treasure hunting can be deadly. Now they are stuck in a dark cavern full of tangled skeletons, restless Indian spirits, and a murderer out for their blood! Will Brian and Gary ever get out of Death Cave alive?
Because many students abhorred traditional book reports, especially at-risk students, I developed a guided reading response sheet for designated books required each semester that were personal reads. This assignment offers page numbers so that students can easily find answers. When students learn the skill to identify answers, state test scores rise. These guided responses increased grade level scores yearly for students who completed them.
Includes 73 literal comprehension questions with some short essay.
