Instructional Ideas
  • Because of the way the packet is organized, you could easily split up most of the sections and hand them out separately, or hand out the entire resource as a packet
Classroom Considerations
  • Many of the questions are recall, but there are some that require higher-level thinking skills
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
  • The extension ideas provide opportunities for more extended writing as well as creative expression through projects
  • Includes some review about halfway through to ensure that learners are keeping up with what's going on in the story
  • Does not include an answer key
