"Zebra" by Chaim Potok.
Using the short story, "Zebra," your students will investigate CHARACTERIZATION, THEME, SYMBOLISM, MAKING INFERENCES, and FLASHBACK & FORESHADOWING in this study guide. A short PowerPoint introduces key vocabulary (quiz included), and a FINAL PROJECT handout combines choice activities with a WRITING CONNECTION and COMPREHENSION TEST.
Answer keys for the handouts as well as the test are included, and a rubric for easy grading of the final project is also inside.
