Item description

This is a 40 page novel study unit for The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. This no-prep, print-and-go resource provides everything you need for a complete novel study unit in which students are reading the text closely, monitoring their understanding, diving into key vocabulary, and using graphic organizers along with text evidence to deepen comprehension.

Each set of chapters in the novel study contains the following:

  • 2 comprehension questions and/or personal responses (some with graphic organizers, some without)
  • 1 key vocabulary word (some chapters require the definition, a picture, and synonyms; some chapters require the definition, a sentence, and antonyms)

This novel study also contains:

  • a sheet for tracking story elements
  • a final open-ended comprehension question requiring the reader to consider the novel as a whole
  • a personal response sheet
  • a multiple-choice assessment covering the entire novel (27 questions).

This is a no-frills, copy-and-go resource for guided reading groups, book clubs, or literature circles. It scaffolds student thinking while allowing for differing responses and spurring conversations.
