This is an 84 page novel study for Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson. Fever 1793 is an excellent book to use in 5th – 8th grades. The story is highly engaging. This book is set during the post-revolutionary time period and give students an idea of life in Philadelphia during the 1790s. The author uses a lot of foreshadowing to hook the reader. I teach 5th grade, and my students really enjoyed this book.
Please see the preview for the table of contents. All activities are ready to be printed and copied.
When creating these guides, the activities are written so that they could be used as individual activities or as a packet that could be given to an independent reading group. The activities are a mix of close reading questions and engaging writing activities. Vocabulary is emphasized heavily.
This guide is broken down into chapters plus after the book activities. One chapter is covered in one day, although the classroom teacher could provide more than one class period for the activities to be completed.
If using this book as an independent work packet, copy the activities for each student and place the copies in a binder. During class, students can take the binder and easily see what they need to complete as a checklist is provided for each day. Students could be required to turn in certain activities, or the teacher could grade the activities in the binder.
If using this as a whole class activity, the teacher should simply select which activities to use and copy the desired pages.
