Effective and easy to use, this set of questions is perfect for reviewing & refocusing each chapter of The Trumpet of the Swan before embarking on the next one. Both literal and higher-level questioning strategies are used. Some chapters include “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” questions to improve whole class evaluation and participation. All questions include the answers after each question.
Just like the most famous of E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web, The Trumpet of the Swan is profound and wise. The novel brims with sage perceptions into nature, disability, and maturation, while adding insight and a few chuckles surrounding love, jazz, camps, zoos, and hotels. Louis, the main character, sets goals and achieves them with hard work and earnestness.
A great read-aloud!
