Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth novel in the series by J.K. Rowling, is the focus of a directed reading worksheet that begins by asking readers to examine the book cover and chapter titles and to predict what the story may be about. Kids are then instructed to read the first chapter silently and answer a series of close reading questions.
- Ask readers to record questions they have after reading the first chapter
- Consider skipping the prediction activities since most class members will be familiar with the series
- If kids have seen the film, they may be able to respond without reading the chapter
- The questions ask readers to provide evidence from the text to support their answers
