167 chapter-by-chapter questions (& many also contain multiple parts) + BONUS 23 final activities for independent or group projects. Questions focus on comprehension of the text, and the author techniques and language & grammatical features used. ALL QUESTIONS INVOLVE HIGHER ORDER THINKING THAT WILL CHALLENGE YOUR STUDENTS!
I do not include spaces for answers, as this allows you to differentiate... you might expect a 1 sentence answer from your lowest group of students, and a whole essay on the same question from your top group of students, including evidence/quotes from the text. It gives you the flexibility to use the questions how you choose. In fact, it also allows you to designate (or let the students choose) which questions are answered by which students.
The questions are based on Bloom's Taxonomy, First Steps Reading Strategies, CARS and The Williams Model.
Concepts and skills covered are:
Connecting to Text
Compare and contrast
Understanding Figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification, idioms)
Grammar- Parts of a sentence
(verbs, adjectives, nouns, adverbs)
Adjustment to Development
Understanding creative people and processes
Tolerance for Ambiguity
Examples of Change
The 23 final activities involve the skills/concepts: Creative Reading & Writing Skills, Visualisation, Intuitive Expression, Evaluate, Analyse, Create, Synthesise, Connecting to Text, Prediction, Visualisation Skills, Creating Mental Images
NOTE: I have a wide range of HIGHER ORDER THINKING novel studies for sale- check out all my titles at my store! They are my best-sellers, as I believe they genuinely fill a need in the market- I actually began making them because I couldn't find anything like them already on the market. I got sick of having to use literature studies that involved really basic types of questioning, and just didn't challenge or extend students' thinking and understanding at all. These novel studies take me a lot of time and careful thought to create- you are truly getting a lot of value for money! I hope you find them as helpful and enjoyable to use as my previous customers have!
