This 40 page document contains thought provoking, multi-layered questions. It is arranged chapter by chapter with a list of challenging vocabulary following each set of questions. This can be used to guide discussions, as homework, in guided reading groups, etc. The questions cover such topics as: bullying, friendships, coming of age, bravery and heroism. The questions challenge the reader to think about, character traits, cause and effect, and making personal connections. I also included a fun culminating activity to use at the end of the book.
