MCEOG
Which of the following describe the Applewhite family?
  a. thriving on chaos
  b. all were extremely talented
  c. they loved spontaneity
  d. all the above

Point of View
How does the way E.D. sees her family differ from that of Jake’s?
      E.D. sees her family as normal and talented while Jake sees them as a
      bunch of freaks.

Problem/Solution
What was the family plan for assimilating Jake into the Creative Academy?
      Jake would be assimilated by clumping him with E.D. He would
      follow her curriculum notebook.

Cause/Effect
Why did Jake hear a scream on his first visit to Wit’s End?
     Cordelia was upset over the goat trying to attack her.

Thinking Questions
How would you feel being sent to the Creative Academy?
      Just like Jake, out of place and worried about fitting in with the
      family.

Do you agree with the quote by Z. Applewhite, “Education is an
adventurous quest for the meaning of life, involving an ability to think things
through.” Explain
      As a fifth grader, I would disagree with this quote. School seems
      separate from life.

Jake, the delinquent, had been kicked out of several schools. He has been
sentenced to schooling at the Creative Academy, run by the extremely
eccentric Applewhites. He has no choice but to accept this and figure out a
way to make his stay as short as possible. Jake attempts to “break the rules”,
but soon realizes there are no rules. He gets acquainted with the school and
begins to settle into life with the loonies.

This book reminds me of The Pinballs by Betsy Byars. In that book, three
children are in foster care and are brought together by their unusual
lifestyles. They have a hard time fitting in with the rest of their classmates
and have no friends. At the end of the story, these three misfits become best
friends and find that they do belong…to each other.

Example of Funny/Amusing Passage

arrogant gets pay back.

Answer: Winston had attacked her, trying to get the butterfly that had
fluttered above her head.
