Perfect for reviewing & refocusing the information
from the previous chapter 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!
