This ninety-four page resource for teaching Robert C. O'Brien's 1972 Newbery Winner has eight different components. (1)The detailed CHAPTER SUMMARIES, written in bulleted format for easy reference, provide a quick method for becoming familiar with the material when time is limited and for refreshing memory when using the novel from year to year. (2)PREREADING ACTIVITIES include discussion and research topics and a bulletin board idea. (3)In the VOCABULARY section are word lists with definitions, dictionary activities, and usage worksheets. (4)The chapter-by-chapter SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS can be put to use in a variety of ways including homework reading guides. The questions require detailed, FACTUAL responses. (5)The series of OBJECTIVE TESTS, which cover the novel as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test, DO NOT REQUIRE STORY INTERPRETATION, but they do check for basic story comprehension. Students will find it necessary to read the material carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on these tests. The goal of this component is to build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills. The pages can also be put to use as whole-class discussion guides, small-group or independent reading guides, homework, and conferencing tools. (6)The activities in THINK, WRITE, CREATE, both chapter-by-chapter and whole book, require students to engage the HIGHER LEVEL THINKING SKILLS of Bloom's Taxonomy. These open-ended activities cover a range of difficulties from the most basic to challenges for gifted students. The items are designed to spark divergent, creative, and speculative thinking, build vocabulary, inspire research, and encourage student interaction with the story and its characters. (7)The GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS are based on specific novel events or characters rather than a standard design. Each one offers opportunities for practicing and improving writing skills. (8)Full ANSWER KEYS are included. Some pages are illustrated with black and white clip art. Ideas/rationale for using each component included.
