1 Review

The author has created reproducible anticipation guides to 300 popular junior novels ranging from classics like "Ben and Me" and "Cricket in Times Square" to the award winner, "Kira, Kira." The book consists of 300 reproducible sets of open ended values questions to pique the interest of readers. Librarians and teachers will use these anticipation guides to spark interest in reading or as comprehension starters, tapping into prior knowledge and starting the process of understanding. The guides are also valuable for closure and comparative discussions with literature circles. In contrast to the low level knowledge recall questions used by some electronic reading programs, these questions are higher order thinking questions that will encourage critical and divergent thinking. Grades 4-8.

I got one book from Darien Book Aid Plan for kids from Namibia. Before giving them those book to read, I decided to read them. I found "Journey to Jo'burg" byt Beerly Naidoo. Then I decided to use this book to make short discussion with kids and goggled name of the book. True and False page for "Journey to Jo'burg" was found in 300 Junior Novel Anticipation Guides. I personally like to create discussion using T/F game, because kids usually have their own thoughts and sometimes their ideas are very funny or sad.
I wish, I could use this book, when I was working in Kazakhstan as director for English Access Microscholarship Program in Pervomaiskii, sponsored by US Embassy. My foundation (Community Foundation of Life-Long Learning) has small, but informative library for English study, where I, unfortunately, never had any of those books noticed in 300 Junior Novel Anticipation Guides.
