Are your students about to read "When Plague Strikes" in their literature books? Many middle school students have never heard of this event, but will be immediately pulled in once they see the gory details behind it all. Use this anticipation guide to give students the chance to set their minds in motion on the story and then later, after reading, they can use the same sheet to confirm their predictions with page numbers and text-based evidence.
There are two anticipation guides on one page, so you can save on the number of copies you have to make. One page will serve two students.
This guide would be a fantastic start to any unit on the Black Plague, not just the literature unit on the topic. Students will be drawn in!
