Story Summary: 2003 Newbery Medal winner. The boy had always been called Astas son, but when Asta, his mother, dies, the village priest reveals that his Christian name is Crispin. He also gives Crispin his mothers lead cross and promises to reveal what the words etched on its surface mean. But before he can tell Crispin, the priest is murdered and Crispin accused of the crime. Believing the cross holds clues to his fathers identity, Crispin flees, eventually joining up with a traveling juggler named Bear. Full of surprises, thrills, twists, treachery, and a hearty dose of what life was actually like in the 16th century, Crispin is also a story of faith, developing maturity, and learning what freedom and manhood really mean.
Looking for more than activity sheets or a who-did-what series of questions? Want to dig into the essence of the novel? This study guide provides easy-to-use, reproducible lessons on literary terms, comprehension and analysis, critical thinking, related scriptural principles, vocabulary, and activities, plus a complete answer key. Examines issues from a Christian perspective. Excellent for private schools and home study. Also an excellent reference for public school teachers, but biblical references may have to be removed.
This CD-ROM version of the study guide contains an interactive .pdf file in which the student can enter his or her answers and save a copy of the file. No papers piling up! The CD contains the interactive study guide file, a full answer key file, and an instructional ReadMe file. The study guide file also may be printed for handouts. Using the CD, teachers may make student copies of the file for student use or may print out the pages they wish to use for handouts. (Files may not be posted on any website for student retrieval.) PC and Mac compatible. Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or higher (9.0 is recommended). Because many of the questions are short essay questions, student files are not autograded and must be graded with reference to the answer key.
