So many novel studies center on pages of comprehension questions or multiple choice quizzes based on the book. While this work may keep students busy, it won't build transferable reading skills.
This standards-aligned book companion pack is designed to develop vocabulary and a deep understanding of reading comprehension skills. The plot of The Westing Game becomes the vehicle for teaching and practicing these skills instead of the end result.
