After reading each chunk of two chapters of Carl Hiaasen's novel Hoot, ask learners to respond to related study questions. The instructions at the top of the questions suggest that individuals should read the questions first, read the chapters next, and respond to the questions last, looking back into the text if they don't know the answers. Since the resource lists many questions, you could assign them for homework, work through them as a class, or ask pairs to collaborate to respond.
- Provides plenty of questions that require an understanding of the text
- Depending on how you plan to use the questions, you may need to eliminate the directions at the top of the page, which refer to students in the third person
- Questions are based solely on plot recall
