This is an advanced worksheeet, ready-to-print and teach handout that facilitates a guided reading and provides while-reading questions for teaching the novel “The Wave” by Morton Rhue / Todd Strasser. The reading log includes:
Comprehension, close reading & analysis questions for each chapter.
Particular focus on close reading, analysis of language and its effects, including historical context links, analysis of structure, themes and puprose.
Since most available reading logs and while-reading activities do not go into enough analytical depth and detail, I put together my own reading log that tries to dig a little deeper and forces the students to engage in higher order thinking and analysis skills.
Enjoy, and please leave feedback!
