1. You will begin your quest for knowledge by researching the four themes in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry below.

2. For each theme, you will fill out a worksheet. When you have completed the four sheets, staple them together. You will need to bring these to each class discussion when the class is discussing the novel. NOTE: If you finish before other students, use your time to compare your findings and learning with one another.


***You are not only repeating what you learned; you are applying this learning to your own experiences or the experiences of the characters; you are evaluating, or giving your opinion on what you've learned; you are comparing your own actions or ideas to those of the characters.***
