Product Description
Gary D. Schmidt's book The Wednesday Wars is one of the most beautiful, eloquently-written stories I have read in a long time. Holling Hoodhood, a 7th grader at Camillo Junior High in 1967, has to deal with a lot in his life: his news obsessed father, his flower-child sister, the neighborhood bullies, and his English teacher Mrs. Baker, who he is convinced hates him. Through his 7th grade year, Holling learns a lot about life, love, war, and Shakespeare. Full of references to the Vietnam and Cold War era, this book does a wonderful job of putting into perspective an important era of U.S. history.

This reading guide has questions related to each chapter, as well as a post-reading assignment. I have organized it so that if you print it, it should copy front/back and create a little booklet!

I strongly recommend this book to teachers who love the English language AND teaching about U.S. History! There are so many connections that can be made.
