Response Journal

To The Student

Although we may read a novel, play, or work of non-fiction for enjoyment, each time we read one, we are building and practicing important basic reading skills. In our ever-more complex society, in which reading has become more and more crucial for success, this, in itself, is an important reason to spend time reading for enjoyment. Some readers, however, are able to go beyond basic reading techniques and are able to practice higher thinking skills by reflecting on what they have read and how what they read affects them. It is this act of reflection­that is, stopping to think about what you are reading­that this journal is attempting to encourage. To aid you, we have included writing prompts for each section; however, if you find something that you wish to respond to in the book more compelling than our prompts, you should write about that. We hope you enjoy reading this book and that the act of responding to what you have read increases this enjoyment.

After you read the indicated sections, choose the questions to which you will respond. Keep in mind that there are no right or wrong answers to these prompts, and there is no one direction in which you must go.

The Hiding Place

Preface

1. In the preface, John and Elizabeth Sherrill speak of how practical Corrie ten Boom's memories have been, how they helped them deal with real problems and events in their own lives. Corrie's response to this was that "...this is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see." Do you agree or disagree with Corrie's philosophy concerning the past? Write a letter to someone close to you that discusses a time in the past that has helped you deal with something in your present. The preface tells the reader that The Hiding Place is the tale of Corrie ten Boom, a woman who exhibited incredible faith and courage amidst the suffering of the Holocaust. In a paragraph or two, write down everything you already know about the Holocaust. As you read The Hiding Place, refer to your list for confirmation of known facts and to add information that you learn. There are several historical and social references in the preface: the Iron Curtain, Vietnam, communism, and Nazism. Look up these terms online or in an encyclopedia and jot down a few significant facts about each. As you read about these references, other terms may crop up that have similar themes--anti-semitism, for example, or genocide. Develop your own vocabulary list from these terms based on things you would like to know about the Holocaust and similar events.

Chapter 1

4. In Chapter 1, Corrie describes one particular day as "...a day for memories. A day for calling up the past. How could we have guessed as we sat there--two middle-aged spinsters and an old man--that in place of memories we were about to be given adventure such as we had never dreamed of? Adventure and anguish, horror and heaven were just around the corner, and we did not know." Reflect back on a time that turned out to be one of those "if I had only known then what I know now" moments. This could be a time when you made a decision that later had bad effects or simply a time in your life that was later marked by contrast with a change in circumstances. Use this memory to offer advice to someone else. If there was something you could have done differently, what was it? Do you have any regrets? Write a couple of paragraphs explaining this situation. 5. Corrie describes the oddities of her house with affection. It is obvious that the Beje is her home, and despite its age and its tilting floors, she loves it. Pretend your own house is on the market for sale. The real estate agent has asked you to describe, in writing, what things you love most about the house. What things about it make it special and make it home? This information will appear in the listing that the real estate agent is creating. Pickwick is introduced in this chapter, and Corrie describes how, while children are drawn to her father, they tend to shy away from Pickwick because of his appearance. He is described by Corrie as "dear ugly Pickwick." Our society, sadly enough, is very caught up in appearances. We tend to make judgments about people based on what they look like. Models in fashion magazines, for example, tend to represent unrealistic and, at times, unhealthy ideals for beauty. Write a letter to the editor of a teen fashion magazine and discuss the importance of looking beyond appearance to who a person really is underneath. Ask the editor to consider using "real" people as models, instead of the fashionably stick-thin, airbrushed beauty.

7. We see some sibling rivalry in Chapter 2 when Corrie comments that "...Nollie was different from me; she was pretty and well-behaved and always had her handkerchief." In a few paragraphs, discuss an instance or instances of sibling rivalry in your own life. After doing so, switch your perspective and discuss the same instance(s) from your sibling's point of view. How did the telling of the event or the emotions involved change? Corrie tells us that Tante Bep "with her perpetual, disapproving scowl, was the oldest of the aunts and the one we children liked least. For thirty years she had worked as a governess in wealthy families and she continually compared [their] behavior with that of the young ladies and gentlemen she was used to." This is a fairly unflattering description, although obvious love for her family radiates from Corrie's recollections. Consider your own family and select a member who, while dearly loved, has some obvious and sometimes entertaining character traits or flaws. Create, as Corrie did, a written caricature of this relative in a paragraph or two. Corrie's father places a high value on education. Although he had had to quit school early to go to work in the watch shop, he was self-taught in such subjects as theology, history, and literature--in five languages, no less. Discuss your own theories regarding education. Do you feel it is as important as Mr. ten Boom did? Do you think it is more important for some people than for others? Are there any reforms you feel would benefit our educational system today? Explain your ideas in a petition you write for educational reform that is addressed to your school Principal.

10. When Corrie innocently asks her father about "sexsin" he provides an analogy for the burden of knowledge by asking young Corrie to carry his traveling case, packed heavily with his watches and spare parts, off of the train. When Corrie attempts to do so and learns that it is simply too heavy a load for her to bear, her father tells her that knowledge is much the same--that there are some things that would prove burdensome in their clarity. How can knowledge be a burden? Write a fable illustrating the burden of knowledge. Fables should be brief, should include animal characters, and should relate a moral lesson.

Chapter 3

11. In Chapter 3, we learn a bit about love and infatuation in Holland during the time period described in the book. Karel, the object of Corrie's devotion, appears in this chapter, and although he is quite a bit older and appears unaware of her, it is enough, Corrie tells us, to merely be in the same room as he is. Her sister Nollie, rather, is the one used to getting attention from males. A standard method of declaring affection at this time was for a boy to request a lock of hair from the girl of his dreams. Unimpressed, Nollie's usual response to such a request was to "...pull a few strands from the ancient gray carpet in [their] bedroom, tie them with a sentimental blue ribbon, and make [Corrie] the messenger." Reflect on how courtship methods in the decades since have changed and write a newspaper or magazine column offering advice on gaining someone's attention and declaring your affection. 12. The ten Boom household changes significantly when it is discovered that Tante Bep has tuberculosis. Look up the disease in an encyclopedia or online and familiarize yourself with its symptoms. Then, take on the persona of the doctor who has had the bad fortune to diagnose Tante Bep. Write a letter to the ten Boom family, explaining carefully how Tante Bep's illness might progress and expressing your condolences for the loss they are certain to suffer. 13. When Corrie comments on Tante Bep's seeming unhappiness with her situation, Mama reveals that Bep has always expressed dissatisfaction with her current lot in life, whatever it may be. She says, "Happiness isn't something that depends on our surroundings, Corrie. It's something we make inside ourselves." Respond to this statement in writing by discussing examples that either prove or disprove it.

14. Tante Jans, when faced with the knowledge that she has approximately three weeks to live, demonstrates remarkable strength and graciousness of spirit. Despite her preoccupation with death during much of her life, she looks to her own death with courage and practicality, stating, "I'm not going to leave an untidy desk behind for someone else to clean up," Write a eulogy for Tante Jans as one of her family members might have done. 15. Upon observing the beginning of a romance between Corrie and Karel, Willem reveals to Corrie that Karel's parents have long since decided that he must marry well, and tells her that she should not expect a proposal. Although Corrie is crushed, she has difficulty believing that Karel, a grown man, could deny his own feelings in favor of his mother's plans. Even though he ultimately does exactly that, pretend that the opposite is true. Imagine that you are Karel, and you have decided that you must follow your heart and propose to Corrie. First, however, you must overcome the hurdle that is your mother. Naturally, you are a bit nervous at the prospect of facing her with your decision, and so you decide to write a practice speech ahead of time. In your practice speech, list the reasons you have decided to go against your mother's plan for your future and anticipate whatever arguments she might raise in return. 16. Toward the end of Chapter 3, Karel brings his fiancée to meet the ten Booms, and although Corrie valiantly manages to stifle her true feelings, she is bitterly disappointed. Read back over pages 44-45, which reveal Corrie's heartbreak and the manner in which she triumphs over it. Then choose one of the following prompts. A. Compose a diary entry that Corrie might have written at this time, including her father's wise advice and Corrie's resulting prayer. B. Although Corrie shows remarkable dignity in her acceptance of Karel's decision, she is still suffering. Write a letter to Karel from Corrie expressing her disillusionment. This letter should convey Corrie's dignified, gentle spirit and her acceptance of the way things are, but should also provide a release for her feelings.

Chapter 4

17. One ten Boom tradition spoken of is that of the older woman counseling the younger woman on the eve of her wedding. Corrie says that "one could no more have got married without it than one could have dispensed with the ring." Since her mother is unable, Tante Anna delivers "the talk." All families have traditions or rituals of some sort. In a letter, invite a friend to participate in one such family ritual or tradition. Describe the tradition, and give a few reasons why your friend should participate. 18. In this chapter, Betsie becomes ill and so it happens that she and Corrie must switch household responsibilities until she gets better. Corrie takes over the work in the shop, including watch repair, while Betsie takes care of the household affairs. They soon discover that they have been splitting up the work backwards their entire lives. Corrie loves the work in the watch shop, while Betsie is far more suited to running a household. Make a list of all of the different types of responsibilities that need to be taken care of around your house. Beside each one, write the name of the person in your family who you believe is best suited to carrying out that task due to some aspect of his or her personality. Explain why you have made the choices you made in a brief paragraph by describing the personalities of each person, and what you feel their strengths and weaknesses might be. 19. Corrie surprises herself by discovering a talent for watch repair. Three years after her mother's death she becomes, in fact, the first licensed woman watchmaker in Holland--no small accomplishment. Write a onepage essay that you might use for a resume or a college application that describes your own accomplishments, talents, and goals for the future.

20. You may have noticed by this point in the novel that Corrie tends to mark the passage of time with references to deaths, marriages, and other momentous occasions. In writing, construct a timeline that shows such important events in your own life. For each event that you use on your timeline, you should write a sentence or two that describes or explains the event.

21. Corrie and her family are shocked and dismayed to see Christoffels treated poorly by Otto, the intern, simply because he is old. Willem tells his sister and father the harsh truth of the new power in their country: that the old and weak are not respected and in fact have but one purpose--to be eliminated. How are the elderly treated in our nation? In an email, ask your teacher to organize a field trip to an area nursing home. Your email should explain why you think this would be a good trip to take and should offer some specific suggestions for things you might do on this visit, such as establishing an elderly pen pal arrangement or something similar.

22. At the beginning of this chapter, Corrie is awakened by the sounds of Germany's invasion of Holland. Imagine yourself in a similar situation, and suppose that you must get the news of the invasion to a family member who is out of the country. Write a telegram message that explains what is happening and warns your family member to stay away. Telegrams charge by the word. So your message must be fewer than 15 words long. 23. As the occupation of Holland gains momentum and power, the ten Booms begin seeing differences in how their news is reported. There is a bias in favor of the Germans, designed to break the spirits of the Dutch and keep them firmly under Germany's oppression. Pretend that you have made the difficult, dangerous decision to create and distribute an underground newspaper that will report real, factual news and that will also help keep people safe. Write an article for the first issue of this newspaper, describing what its purpose will be and how it will safely be distributed. Use real events that Corrie has spoken of in previous chapters to give it realism. 24. Corrie tells us in this chapter about the mysterious disappearance of various individuals at different times. "A watch, repaired and ready, hanging on its hook in the back of the shop, month after month. A house in Nollie's block mysteriously deserted, grass growing in the rose garden. One day Mr. Kan's shop up the street did not open. Father knocked on his door as we passed that noon, to see if someone were ill, but there was no answer." Write a found poem about any of these disappearances. A found poem is one in which all of the words are "found" somewhere else--in this case in The Hiding Place. You may take words from any place in the book and rearrange them to suit your poem. Add your own words as necessary to convey your meaning. Use capital letters to indicate which words are "found." An example might be: WATCH REPAIRED AND READY But not collected. JEWS WILL NOT BE SERVED. When does it end? NAZISM ... A DISEASE.

25. When the soldiers come to take some of the Jews away, Corrie's father looks with pity not at the Jews, but at the Germans, because, as he says, "They have touched the apple of God's eye." Have you ever given forgiveness and understanding to someone who clearly did not deserve it? Pretend you are an advice columnist and have to give someone advice on responding to a similar situation. Write a column describing your beliefs on this subject and explain why it might be better to forgive than to hold a grudge. 26. Corrie's actions as they relate to the Jews and other people in jeopardy are certainly selfless. She prays that God will use her in any way, shape, or form, at any time, regardless of the danger to herself. She has had what she calls a waking dream in which she and her family are taken away from Haarlem and all that is safe and secure. The realness of the dream frightens her, and yet she continues to put herself in danger to help other people. Most of us have had similar "waking dreams" that seem real. When we awaken, we wonder for a moment if the events really happened, or if perhaps they are a warning of what is to happen. Write an entry for a "dream journal" that records the most vivid dream that you can remember having. How did you feel when you awakened?

27. Peter stuns his family when he defiantly plays Holland's national anthem in church, bringing the church congregation to its feet to sing the forbidden words. Pretend that you are in the same circumstances and have been forbidden to say the pledge of allegiance to the flag or to sing your country's national anthem. Write a letter to a friend in a foreign country, describing how you feel about this. 28. In this chapter, the secret room, the hiding place, is built into Corrie's bedroom. The addition of this room, of course, makes everything the ten Booms are doing even riskier than before. Pretend that you live in Holland at this time and you have decided that you would like to be a part of this same underground. Write a note that will be sent to the leader of the underground network describing your willingness to help, your understanding of the risk involved, and the skills and abilities you would be able to bring to the cause. 29. Imagine that you are one of the people being hidden away in the twoand-a-half foot wide space in Corrie's bedroom. How would you entertain yourself if you had to remain hidden for any great length of time? How would you pass the time spent cooped up in such a small space? Pretend that this occurred more recently in history and that you have been able to smuggle a wireless laptop computer into your hiding place. By chance, you are able to instant message a friend or relative during your confinement. Write out the instant message conversation that might take place at such a time. Be careful not to drop any clues as to your exact location--that might get your hosts in danger!

Chapter 7

30. At the beginning of Chapter 7, we see that necessities, such as shoes, have become so scarce that Nollie has to potentially stand in line all day in order to get a pair. Think of our own society, and the absolute wealth of things that we both possess and have access to. If you were in a wartime occupation situation, and such things became scarce, what do you think you could manage to do without? Write a list of ten items that are extremely important to you. Beside each item, explain why that item is so special. Then number the items from one to ten, ten meaning "I could possibly do without it" and one meaning "I could not survive without this item." 31. The instructions that Corrie passes along to Mietje regarding her son and his escape are thorough and exact. Imagine that you are a member of this underground network and are responsible for setting up rendezvous of this nature. Write a set of directions that you might pass along to help someone get out of dangerous territory. 32. The ten Booms, by the end of this chapter, have begun taking in "orphans"--the ones refused by other members of the underground because they are too dangerous for some reason or another. Corrie calls these people her family. What does the word family mean to you? Write a poem using FAMILY as the subject.

33. The ten Booms experience a close call when Otto, Captain Altschuler, arrives for an unexpected visit. Although it turns out well, they are all shaken by the event. Write an article for an adventure magazine describing a close call you have had. If you have never actually experienced a brush with danger or the like, create a fictional account for the article. 34. When Corrie receives a summons to go to the police chief's office, she prepares for the worst case scenario by packing a "prison bag," filled with a Bible, a pencil, needle and thread, soap, toothbrush, and comb. If you suspected that you were going to be imprisoned somewhere for a length of time and were allowed to pack one bag, what would you pack? Create a list of the contents of your bag, and explain why you would choose each item. 35. Corrie learns that the police chief is, in fact, working with the underground just as she is, and he trusts her with the information that there is an informant working against him and others within the police department. The only solution, the chief says, is to have the man killed, and he asks Corrie for the name of an individual who might be able to rid them of their problem. Although Corrie understands the danger, and agrees that the man must be silenced, she tells the chief that she believes she is here to save lives instead of ending them, and suggests a prayer instead. How difficult do you think it was for her to make this decision, to put her future and that of the underground in the hands of faith? Have you ever had to rely solely on faith to get you through a difficult situation or predicament? Pretend you have been working on your memoirs, like Corrie's The Hiding Place, and you have had such an experience. Write a short outline of one chapter in your memoirs that deals with the subject of faith in difficult times.

Chapter 9

36. The downfall of the Beje begins when Corrie trusts the wrong person seeking help. Although she is troubled by the fact that he cannot meet her eyes, she makes the choice to believe his tale, and thus the underground in Haarlem is discovered and arrested. If she had known the tell-tale signs of lying, perhaps she would not have been taken in by the man's story. Pretend you are a psychologist trained to tell when a person is lying. You have been asked to present this information to an audience of police officers. Most of us think we can determine when a person is lying. Make a list of things you feel would lead you to believe someone is not being truthful.

37. Mr. ten Boom quotes scripture from memory in place of the regular Bible reading after his arrest. The scripture he chooses is appropriate in light of their circumstances: "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in Thy word....Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe...." The ten Booms found their safety and security in God's word, calling it a "hiding place" and trusting in it to keep them safe and whole. What is your main "hiding place"? Write a paragraph that reveals your hiding place, or comfort, in troubled times.

38. Corrie describes the day she, her father, Betsie, and the others are transported at Grote Markt as "one of those radiant winter days when the air seemed to shimmer with light." The beauty of her description is at odds with the terror of the moment--being taken away from all that is safe and secure and delivered into a nightmare. It is evident that the author is using the contrast of the imagery to highlight the frightening event. This is a technique used fairly frequently in literature, although authors will also use more complimentary imagery to underline such an occurrence--for example, a thunderstorm in the midst of a heated argument. In a couple of sentences, use imagery as Corrie did to describe a more fitting setting for this moment. 39. Imagine that events of a similar nature have been taking place in modern times, and an establishment that you are involved in had just been raided. So far, the secret room in which you are hiding has not yet been discovered, but you are able to clearly hear and imagine everything going on beyond the walls of the secret room. Imagine that you have been faithfully keeping a blog recording events of your concealment. Now, write a blog entry for the raid that is occurring and your feelings during this time.

40. As Corrie and the others are taken from place to place, line to line, and interrogated, a Jew refuses to give up his purse and is beaten for it. Instead of being outraged at the officers doing the beating, Corrie states, "Wildly, unreasonably, I hated the man being kicked, hated him for being so helpless and so hurt." Have you ever been in a situation when you have, like Corrie, despised someone's weakness? Describe this time. 41. Once settled in her cell in Scheveningen, Corrie soon learns to fear, more than anything else, that "prison boredom." Why would boredom be feared above all else? Write a paragraph that explains this idea. 42. Corrie's cellmates show their ingenuity by creating a card game out of toilet paper squares. Use your own creativity to come up with a way to pass the time in a similar situation, using only the items that might be found in your cell. Write a set of instructions for the next people who occupy this cell that clearly identify the item or items used and show how they are altered to create an activity or game to pass the time. 43. In Scheveningen Corrie risks the punishment of kalte kost, the bread ration alone with nothing else, as well as other punishment to have the four Gospels. The Gospels are a comfort to her, as well as a comfort she shares with her cellmates, and to her they are worth the risk. Is there anything in your life you would risk virtually anything for? Pretend you are imprisoned and are able to get word to someone you trust on the outside. If there was one item this person could smuggle in to you, what would it be? Write a letter to this individual requesting this one item and explaining what it means to you.

44. During Corrie's imprisonment, she stumbles upon the realization that this is part of God's plan for her and others' lives. She says, "if the Gospels were truly the pattern of God's activity, then defeat was only the beginning. I would look around at the bare little cell and wonder what conceivable victory could come from a place like this." Think of either a book, movie, or television program in which victory follows defeat. Write a review for an entertainment magazine that refers to this victory from defeat and describes the basic plot. 45. On April 15, 1944 Corrie celebrates her birthday alone in her solitary prison cell by singing a child's song. If you were alone on your birthday, how would you mark the occasion? Write a paragraph describing how you would do so.

46. The Lieutenant is deceptive in appearance. On the surface he is like any other agent of Hitler, while underneath he is a family man seeking truth and understanding of the horrors he has witnessed. Pretend you are a casting director for a movie version of The Hiding Place and are looking for an actor to fill this role. Write a proposal for a particular actor to be chosen, explaining why the man's appearance would suit the role and what his acting abilities would bring to the interpretation of the role. 47. The Lieutenant tells Corrie that while he appears to be a person of some authority, he, too, is in prison. Explain in writing to another student what this statement means. 48. The reunion between Corrie and her siblings is touching, because it shows clearly their obvious devotion to each other. Pretend you have been away from your family for a good length of time and have decided to hold a family reunion to get everyone together again. Write an invitation to attend this family reunion. Be sure to include a date, a location, and any instructions for dress, bringing food or musical instruments, and the like. 49. Nollie gives Corrie a Bible, for which she is very thankful, having just given away her last remaining Gospel. Corrie has somehow managed to find comfort in giving away her only comforts. How is this possible? Explain this in a paragraph and provide an example from your own experience if possible.

50. Betsie's outlook on her suffering and imprisonment is truly amazing. Instead of cursing those who persecute her, she looks at the situation as a way to teach love through example, saying that if these people can be taught to hate, they can surely be taught to love. Imagine that Corrie and Betsie make it safely out of Vught, and they are to be nationally recognized for their work on the underground. Write a speech that highlights Betsie's belief in the goodness of man, and her conviction that she was sent to serve hatred with love.

51. While Corrie is grateful here in Vught to be around people again, she is also filled with sadness at their suffering. She refers to the situation as a paradox. Look up the term paradox and explain the paradoxical nature of this experience at Vught to someone in the class who does not understand.

52. The journey from Vught to Ravensbruck is horrific. Pretend you are one of those crowded into the stifling confines of the boxcars. Write an account, in less than one hundred words, of the journey on the notepad you have smuggled in with you. 53. Imagine you are a German prison guard assigned to Ravensbruck. Although you are German, the horrors you have witnessed have caused you to place your sympathies with those imprisoned. Write a letter of complaint to a higher-up, describing the poor conditions at Ravensbruck and requesting reform. 54. Corrie and Betsie again risk much to hold nightly Bible readings in Barracks 28. Pretend you are one of those living in Barracks 28 and write a brief note to Corrie and Betsie expressing your gratitude for the nightly readings, as they provide you with much comfort. 55. Betsie makes Corrie list the things she is thankful for at Ravensbruck, from the crowded conditions that will help more people hear the Bible each night to the biting fleas. Make a list to be read to your family on Thanksgiving Day of all the things you have to be thankful for.

56. Corrie finally understands exactly why she should be thankful for the fleas, as they are what keep the guards away at night, making it possible for Corrie and Betsie to hold their worship service. Can you apply this lesson to your own life? Is there anything which, on the surface, you might not be thankful for, but probably should be? Explain this idea in a paragraph or two. 57. Betsie and Corrie come up with a plan for their lives after Ravesnbruck, which includes caring for those people who have lost their homes and livelihoods to the Holocaust. What is your plan for your future? Outline a brief plan that includes major events in your future. You may wish to include such things as getting a job, getting a promotion, getting married, having children, taking a major trip, retiring, etc. 58. Corrie comes to a realization about herself while at Ravensbruck: while she is selfish and self-centered, the power and ability to lend aid and love comes not from herself, but from Christ. It is a simple fact that we are all, by nature, self-centered and egocentric, more so at various points in our lives. Write a journal entry that explores the part of yourself that is selfish.

59. Corrie sees in others an indifference that she calls a disease. Imagine you are running for office and would like to address this problem in the American people. In a speech, explain how indifference can be a disease, and offer solutions for dealing with it. 60. Corrie's Christmas Day is spent very differently from most of your own-- carrying bedpans to and fro and lying ill in a hospital. Contrast Corrie's Christmas with your own typical Christmas in the form of a few photo captions that you might put on a scrapbook page. 61. Corrie's journey home is filled with anticipation, hunger, and pain from the edema in her legs. She has to switch trains frequently and spend long intervals simply in waiting. An itinerary is a sort of schedule that details the events of a trip--the modes of travel, the times and dates, the stops that will be made, the activities that will be conducted. In the form of an itinerary, describe a journey you have taken. 62. After returning home, Corrie and another woman start a home at Bloemendaal to help care for those affected by the events of the war. One of Corrie's tasks is to request donations from those able to afford them. Write a speech that Corrie might have made at a charity dinner requesting donations.

Our Complete Teacher's Kits Make Great Literature Accessible to ALL Your Students

EACH STUDENT LEARNS HOW TO UNDERSTAND AND LOVE LITERATURE DIFFERENTLY. Some learn best through short answer questions; some through preparing for tests; others through personal response questions; many through group and individual activities; and some learn best visually. Writing and preparing dozens of different activities, essays, tests, and response questions is the most timeconsuming, and sometimes most tedious, part of teaching. For a unique curriculum and to give you a wide variety of reproducible materials, we have combined our Teaching Units, Activity Packs, Response Journals, and, when available, our Headlines in one low-priced package that gives you everything you need to teach to all your students.

Perfect for New Teachers!

Response Journals

We present students with a series of writing prompts designed to approach the works from a more personal perspective. Students are expected to write letters of advice, keep a journal as if they were a character from the book, relate the plot to their own lives, and more. Separately, Response Journals are $19.95.

ACH UNIT identifies scholarly objectives and poses questions designed to develop mastery of those objectives. Our multiple choice/essay tests are also constructed to test for those objectives. Because our mission is to write materials that will enable the student who uses the unit to go on and read more literature with more understanding, we include no puzzles, no word-find games, no extensive biographies, and only as much background as is necessary.
