This forty-five page resource for teaching Fred Gipson’s 1957 Newbery Honor Book has two components.
First is a series of OBJECTIVE TESTS that check for basic comprehension. The quizzes cover the novel chapter-by-chapter and as a whole book test. Students will find it necessary to read the material carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on these tests.
The second section SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT/SOMETHING TO WRITE ABOUT is a series of open-ended questions and activity prompts based on the higher-level thinking skills of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Some items address individual chapter events while others are whole-book in nature.
Objective tests answer keys are included
