This product includes 125+ comprehension, literary instruction, reflection, critical thinking, discussion, and composition prompts on cards for studying the novel Words on Fire, written by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Nielsen. This book is a compelling historical fiction novel that continues the tradition of Nielsen's earlier works including Resistance and A Night Divided by highlighting an important story from history. It centers on a period of oppression against the Lithuanians and spotlights the power of reading and books in preserving a nation's culture. It recounts the role individuals and young people can play in preserving community and motivating resistance. It is thought-provoking, eye-opening, informative, and inspiring. It challenges students to contemplate the importance of books, reading, freedom, and community in powerful ways. I love this novel and highly recommend it as an inspiring novel study for the classroom.

This resource is designed to engage students in important discussions on significant historical and modern themes. It has special appeal for middle grade through high school readers. The high-interest and important story line captures the reader's interest and holds it while detailing this important event in history.

  • This novel is appropriate for upper middle school and secondary boys and girls. Most students will be immediately engaged by the story, and its themes will inspire thought and discussion. The book explores the tragedy of oppression, prejudice and indifference, the value of friendship, community, history, literacy, books, family, perseverance, and the importance of standing up for the rights of all.

  • This book is an especially useful vehicle for addressing a wide range of TEKS and Common Core standards and the questions provided allow differentiation and adaptation of how the book is used to address these standards in discussion, presentation, and composition.

  • This resource is great for classroom discussion, literature circles, book clubs, novel studies, task cards, book challenges, reflection journals, and/or student writing prompts.

  • The questions are labeled by chapter for chapter specific questions. An answer key is provided for chapter detail-specific questions.

  • General questions exploring themes, structure, mood, literary elements, and the author's craft are also included in this resource without reference to specific chapters.

  • The questions in this resource are especially designed for discussion and reflection. The questions prompt students to think critically about the story, share observations, express their understanding, and make connections and applications while exploring literary elements.
