Moon Over Manifest: A Novel Study by Jean Martin

Published by Jean Martin
This 62 page packet is intended for use with students who are reading the 2011 Newbery Award winning book, Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool. It is intended to challenge and guide students in grades 5-9. The book is a spell-binding, historical fiction story that will dovetail nicely with social studies classes that have covered both US History and /or World History (see the synopsis on the next page).

This packet contains a ready-to-use, 34 page student booklet (which divides the text into 8 separate reading assignments of approximately 40 pages each), an answer key, an 8 page list of vocabulary words found in each assignment, an overview of the text, a student bookmark, discussion questions, and a list of potential research topics. The student booklet provides 4 pages of chapter-by-chapter questions and activities for students to do with each reading assignment. The activities include both reading and writing skills/crafts. They cover vocabulary, similes (of which there are dozens and dozens in the book!), idioms, point-of-view, summarizing, visualizing/sketching, recognizing historical facts, character traits, explaining/describing/clarifying, demonstrating comprehension, and understanding the author’s purpose.
The student booklet is designed as independent work for the student and provides a guideline for classroom discussion and mini-lessons as well. With a few exceptions, the booklet appears in black and white to take into account tight school budgets and the higher cost of copying & printing in color. The student booklet is aligned with National Standards.


MOON OVER MANIFEST…in a Nutshell:

This book was the 2011 Newbery Award Winner: not an easy accomplishment for a new author! This book is truly a MUST READ for students and teachers alike. Clare Vanderpool’s novel is heartwarming, spellbinding, challenging, and historically accurate. A rare treat!

Having lived life drifting from place to place with her father, twelve-year-old Abilene is disappointed to learn that she will spend the summer where her father spent a portion of his boyhood (Manifest, Kansas) while he is away working on a railroad job. Her time there becomes an opportunity to learn as much as she can about her drifter-father and his life in Manifest in 1918; this leads to a summer-long “spy hunt” to discover the meaning of clues she finds hidden in an old box. Through Abilene’s eyes, the reader learns about the impact of immigration, prejudice, mining, and the Depression during 1936. Expertly woven with Abilene’s observations are stories from 1918 told by Miss Sadie, the local Fortune Teller, along with letters from a WWI soldier and local newspaper articles. The issues of prohibition, immigration, drought, the Depression, prejudice, the Ku Klux Klan, the influenza epidemic of 1918, family ties, friendship, roots, and town politics are all revealed as the story is told. This is a wonderful companion for the social studies classroom and provides countless opportunities for further discussion and research!

Appropriate for grades 5 and up. A challenging book for all intermediate readers!
