Track Your Changes in Thinking with City of Ember
I reintroduced City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau when dystopian fiction became popular. I felt it was a good way to introduce the genre to third through fifth graders.
While I read the book aloud, we were discovering the truth about the city. I created a form with sentence starters to help students record their changes in thinking. To download this form which can be used with other books, please visit this post at Artistry of Education.
