1. The Logan family has many strong values.
Some of these include: self-respect, caring, completion of tasks, and
honesty. Give examples of each of these that you found throughout
Possible Answer: Self-respect - Cassie always stood up for what
she believed. She even tricked Lillian Jean. This shows that
Cassie had a lot of respect for herself. Caring - All of the Logan
family was very caring. Papa was very kind to give Mr. Morrison a
job. Mama was always very kind to her students. All of the
Logan children were kind and caring to each other. Completion of
tasks - The Logans made sure they paid their taxes no matter how difficult
it was or what they had to give up. Honesty - The Logan children
always told their parents the truth about what they were doing. They
did even when they were doing things their parents didn't approve of.
2. Do you think the Logan family will ever discuss
the fire in the cotton field?
Possible Answer: Yes, I do believe they will discuss it. I
think if there was another chapter in the book that mama and papa would
have sat the children down and talked about it. They were a very
open and honest family.
3. Imagine that you find a time capsule that was
buried by Cassie in 1933. What items do you think you will find
inside and why?
Possible Answer: I think the time capsule might have a letter
written by Cassie. It would explain how she was treated and it would
show how stubborn she was about how she felt about her treatment in
1933. There might also be one of the school books that she had in
school. I also think there would be some cotton that she might have
picked with her own hands.
4. Make a prediction as to what you think will
happen to T. J.
Possible Answer: Even though I believe it is wrong I think
that T. J. would have gone to prison and would have to work on the chain
gang until he was a very old man. I think that Cassie and her
brothers would have made every effort to visit him in prison as often as
5. Do you think Cassie will ever go to high school
Possible Answer: If any child in those days could have gone to
high school and college I believe Cassie would have been the one to.
She was always questioning why things were the way they were and was very
upset about this. In this book she is a young girl in elementary
school. I think she would have continued to question and find
answers and would have eventually gone to high school and possibly even
6. In Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Cassie is kept
from achieving all that she dreams of. Make a prediction as to what
Cassie would have become if racial prejudice were not a part of her life
when she was growing up.
Possible Answer: I think Cassie would have become some kind of
politician. She would have grown up and made sure that things
changed for the black people. Even as a young girl she was too
troubled to let things remain the same.
