We started an independent novel study in my 10th grade English class today! And although some of my students were a little less than enthusiastic about reading “a whoooooole book!!???” they seem to have taken to the challenge with gusto and determination. I’ve asked them to share some their understanding of their novel on this post. Here is what I am having them do:
1. State the title of the book they are reading.
2.Share an interesting quote from what they’ve read thus far and explain why they find it interesting.
3. Pose a question or share a comment on content, author style, personal connection etc.
I can’t tell you what a perfect morning it is when I see a class of 33 young people read!
