I've never read this book, but the class that I'm subbing in read it in early November before I got there. They were given an assignment to write an 11th chapter for the book (I guess the book only has 10). The regular teacher had started collecting the essays before she left for her maternity leave, but hadn't gotten them from all of the students so none of them were graded. I wanted to make sure that all of the assignments were finished before vacation (there were others too) so I gave the students a TON of time to complete any unfinished writing assignments and collected them all last Thursday. Now I'm left with the task of grading them all, which is fine, except I've never read Stone Fox so I'm not exactly sure how to grade them. I'll be grading them on spelling and grammar, but I'd like to be sure they understood the book as well as that was the point of the assignment, I'm sure. The regular teacher just had her baby a week ago so now really isn't the time to be bothering her with emails, but I don't want to be grading these things until February! Anyway, if anyone could help me out a little by telling me what happens in the book it'd be GREATLY appreciated!
