Enrich students' reading experience with the discussion questions, writing prompts, research topics, and drama activities in this teacher's guide for Double Dutch. Students will learn about the competitive sport of jumping rope while examining family relationships, the idea of fear, and the consequences of lying.
Delia loves Double Dutch more than just about anything, and she's really good at it—so good she and her teammates have a shot at winning the World Double Dutch Championships. Delia would die if she couldn't jump—but Delia has a secret, and it could keep her off the team next year. Delia's friend Randy has a secret too, one that has him lonely and scared. Delia and Randy's secrets collide on what should be the happiest day of Delia's life, and the collision threatens to destroy their friendship.
