Part II: Tools for the Language Arts Classroom

This is only a web preview. To print the Idea Book, click here.

This section of the Idea Book focuses on Language Arts issues.  It includes first a set of questions investigating the elements of fiction and the writer’s tools as they appear in The Great Wide Sea.  Another set of questions is broader and geared toward either discussion or essay topics.  Next comes a group of questions that focus on the poems and books mentioned in the novel.  Finally, I have included a set of writing prompts that are more creative than expository.  Please click on the links below to see each section.
