One of the best tactics to get students interested in history is found in reading a well-written and factually based historical fiction novel. Rise to Rebellion by Jeff Schaara provides that opportunity. But the novel by itself does not give teachers or homeschooling parents insight as to the level of understanding experienced by the student. Nor will simply reading the book cause the student to grapple with the content at a high level of comprehension. A Study Guide - Designed Questions for the historical fiction novel Rise to Rebellion provides an excellent format for meaningful discussions that reveal student comprehension. Author James Brigleb was a classroom teacher for 30 years, and it was in that setting where this study guide was developed, field tested, and enjoyed by both students and participating parents. Brigleb's questions are carefully crafted, using Bloom's Taxonomy of learning objectives. As a result, discussions reveal a learner's ability to reach the higher levels of learning including analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating. This study guide provides an excellent source of questions for discussion on Rise to Rebellion from start to finish. Parents of students in Mr. Brigleb's classes rave about the study guide because it allowed them to get a very clear picture of what their child was learning. Additionally, it gave parents an opportunity to interact with their son or daughter while discussing something sadly missing in today's America - that being, a clear understanding and appreciation of the event which birthed our nation, the events leading to the American Revolution. Whether you are a teacher in a traditional classroom setting, a homeschooling parent, or perhaps a grandparent that wants to make sure that adolescents and teens in your sphere of influence appreciate the legacy of America's beginnings, this study guide will give you an outstanding basis for achieving that end.
