A few pre-reading activities are included to gauge a student's familiarity with the context of the novel. Once the student has began reading the novel, vocabulary activities, graphic organizers, review and comprehension questions, quizzes, a final test, puzzles, project and essay ideas, and a line-listed answer key are included. Exercises help students focus on literary and character analysis, as well as critical thinking and comprehension skills. Student questions include page numbers that reference the edition quoted in the front cover [Tor paperback edition, new material copyright 1988 by Tom Doherty Associates, first Tor edition May 1990]. 48 reproducible for classroom use pages, softcover.
