Reviewer Comments:

This resource for The Sniper, offers guiding questions, as well as a list of vocabulary words to enhance understanding of the story. The questions invite students to make text to self, text to text, and text to world connections. While providing the list of vocabulary words is helpful, further creation of how to use the words in context and suggestions about how to bring the words to life for the students would be important.
