The instructional overview includes instructional background for asking and answering questions, instructional objectives for each of the Book Club meetings, and a list of the materials and preparation necessary to host the Cam Jansen: The Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds Book Club.

Set the stage for understanding the importance of asking and answering questions while reading with a fun and interactive activity. Students will also be introduced to how to use the 5 W's and 1 H question stems to solve the mystery while reading David A. Adler's Cam Jansen: The Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds.

Building on the work students began in the first Cam Jansen:The Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds Book Club meeting, they will use the 5 W's and 1 H to ask and answer questions about each of the characters in the story. Students will use their questions to determine whether or not each of the characters is a suspect in the robbery of Parker's Jewelry Store.

This Book Club meeting for Cam Jansen: The Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds by David A. Adler focuses on asking and answering questions about the key details in the text. This skill is reinforced with the I Have/Who Has interactive game.

The final Book Club meeting provides the opportunity for students to explore what to do when they can't find the answers to their questions in the text. (Hint: Making inferences to the rescue!) Students will practice using text evidence to make an inference by playing an inferencing game that focuses on character emotions.

Use this six-question assessment to determine whether or not students understand the key concepts associated with asking and answering questions.
