Each chapter has three or four questions and an activity, as well as chapter-specific rubrics that assess reading, writing, oral communication, and media literacy expectations (based on the revised Ontario Language Arts Curriculum [2006]). Teachers will find everything they need to enrich their students’ experience with the text. Created by Martha Martin.
