Fulfill state-mandated objectives and national guidelines AND spark student learning with Prestwick Activity Packs. Providing a wide variety of activities such as role-playing, completing maps and charts, comparing authors' styles, and drawing from an array of sources, Activity Packs give students, individually or in small groups, hands-on experience with abstract literary concepts, including the intricacies of theme, nuances of style and plot, and motivations of characters. The clear-cut directions, spirited interactions, and valuable payoffs add up to time well spent.

October Sky - Response Journal October Sky - Response Journal


from Prestwick House
PWH302546 (Middle School, High School)
Think Outside the Book! By reflecting on what they've read, students develop new ideas and link these ideas to their lives. To facilitate this process, we offer reproducible Prestwick Response Journals in the tradition of the response-centered teaching movement. Each Journal offers prompts for every chapter in the book encouraging students to relate their life experiences with those of the characters within the book. Your students will get more out of their literature when they feel personally involved. Makes a great warm-up activity.
Grades: 7 - 12

For the new teacher, Prestwick House's extensive line of title-specific Teaching Units may serve as a starting point. For the experienced teacher, the Unit may serve as a point of departure. Our aim is to save you time and energy while alleviating the frustration associated with teaching a new book. Each Unit identifies scholarly objectives and poses questions designed to develop mastery of those objectives. Our multiple-choice and essay tests are constructed to determine understanding of those objectives. Every unit includes brief introductory materials, a vocabulary list, questions for essay and discussion, a chapter-by-chapter study guide, and a multiple-choice and essay test.
