A modern alternative to SparkNotes and CliffsNotes, SuperSummary offers high-quality Study Guides with detailed chapter summaries and analysis of major themes, characters, and more. For select classroom titles, we also provide Teaching Guides with discussion and quiz questions to prompt student engagement.

How to use

Use these Teaching Materials to assess comprehension and facilitate analysis of a challenging text.

Reading-check questions can be used after students read chapter sets independently or as a group. Reading-check, reading comprehension, multiple-choice, and/or short-answer questions can be used as formative assessment tools as readers proceed through the book unit, or as summative assessment tools after the completion of the chapter set or book. Use the questions to review aloud after reading multiple chapter sets, or after completing the book in preparation for the unit test.

Questions can also be utilized in lesson planning and unit design.

Use questions as:

  • Discussion starters (examples throughout)
  • Entrance and exit “tickets”
  • Writing activity ideas
  • Prompts to create opportunities for finding evidence and support in the text, employing critical thinking skills, and practicing test-taking skills
