There are three levels of anticipation guides depending on the abilities and needs of your students. The upper-level guide forces students to not only discuss the themes in the novel prior to reading the story but to also find evidence in the text to support a specific viewpoint. The Middle and Lower level activities ask students to consider their own opinions about certain themes in the novel before reading and then review their opinions after reading.
Use Note Taking guides to assist students with taking notes as they read. Various levels have been provided for you so that you can meet the instructional needs and levels of your students.
Use the author biographies to assist students in gathering information about the author at the appropriate reading level for individualized learning. Information about how to use Lexiles can be found at Lexile.com
