    The Westing Game
    By CQ

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Since The Westing Game is a whodunit book, my class became really involved with it. It can be difficult reading for nonreaders unless you do daily activities about the book. Some of the things I used was t-charts, sociograms, the hot seat. Since the mystery continually evolves it was important for me to make predictions and return to them over and over so students could revise them (as their found new evidence). I used a fraction hunt to get them into the book. I hid a candy bar in the room and gave clues to its location. This set the stage for the mystery.
