Product Description
Novel studies can build key reading comprehension skills into your routine, but many people struggle to have their students transfer the essential comprehension skills to other reading selections. These Zane and the Hurricane foldable novel study activities are designed to support students in mastering skills like main idea, inferring, and summarizing through a targeted daily comprehension mini-lesson while allowing students to have deep conversations about the impact of natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina.

This product is the perfect way to do both in a format that won't require hours of preparation or bore your students with never-ending chapter comprehension questions. Students will build skills in text analysis, summary, making inferences, and more in this realistic fiction novel about justice and friendship.

Designed to be used whole-class, small group, or as an individual book study. Each section of the no prep, foldable trifolds focuses on a different essential reading comprehension skill and aligns with state and Common Core standards.

These aren't your typical novel study once-size-fits all comprehension questions. Instead, the questions are designed to give your students an opportunity to formulate and communicate their own thinking about the story through critical thinking and text analysis in a non-threatening way that even hesitant readers enjoy working on.

Skills addressed:
✔Main Idea & Summary
✔Point of View
✔Making Inferences
✔Analyzing Text
✔Problem & Solution
✔Cause & Effect
✔Context Clues
And so much more!
