> Extended writing activity has four topics to select from. Each has many 'starter questions' to get students' ideas rolling. Length of assignment is up to teacher.
> 40 reading comprehension questions
Three types of questions:
Short Response (complete sentences not required)
Complete Response (complete sentences required)
> Some questions are 'no wrong answer' or sketch style responses - to encourage independent thinking and creative engagement.
> Story review form is a career-long reusable (can be reused with no changes for stories, books, film, and epic poetry).
> Character graphic organizer is specific to the story, not generic.
> Themes: identity, search for belonging, self-reflection, communication
> Depending on how many of the included resources you use, this mini-workbook can take 2-5 days. (For example, the basic reading comprehension questions will take around 1 to 1-1/2 class periods. While use of the extended response/essay activity will add 1-3 days, depending on length required by the teacher.)
<>Resources are designed for struggling learners. Perfect modified resources for special education or below-level learners. Workbook questions are not all higher order thinking (a few are); they are roughly 7-8th grade level. The extended response/essay activity is roughly 8-9th grade.
