Football Freebie 11/11/14!! Literary Analysis


If you’re a Buckeye fan, you know how to answer that cheer! [I-O!!!!]

Big congrats to my Ohio State Buckeyes for cementing their spot as the leader in the Big Ten! No close game this week, we put the smack down on Sparty! As your reward, here is this week’s football freebie!

For ten years of my life, I worked on writing a novel. Once it was finally finished, I read it to my students, who gave me amazing feedback so I could improve it for my target audience. Now, the novel is published and for sale on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback format. I also have an entire unit to go with the novel that is available on my TpT site. You can also purchase the .pdf version of the novel on the TpT site as well. However, I want as many people as possible to be able to expose their students to the novel, so my freebie this week is the first chapter of the novel and some questions (short answer, discussion, etc.), vocabulary, etc. There are great opportunities to explore figurative language, characterization, dialogue, and various story elements. Download the freebie, and if you and your students get hooked, come back for more!

The novel is targeted at teens aged 13-17. The story is about two girls who become somewhat unlikely friends, and the main character has to make a decision about loyalty vs. honesty, and her choice leads her down a path to coming of age.
