PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reading Template for Novel Unit Study
Common Core Reading Standards: 1,2,4

This is a 14-page packet that can be used for any novel at really any level. Students have "applied" to a fictitious university called Comprehension Challenge University and have the opportunity to prove that they deserve to attend this very prestigious school. It is probably best if students work in a group for this but working individually would work also.

Once students have a novel to read, they then need to divide the book up into 10-12 days. A template for their daily reading is included. Once students know the chapters/pages to read for each day, they are ready to read and complete the challenge packet acivities.

Each day, students will need to write down two discussion/comprehension questions (and answers), along with finding two vocabulary words and their meanings. In addition to the above, students also need to identify character profiles, draw pictures (visualize), make connections, predict, and more.

At the end of the packet is a detailed grading rubric that can be used to inform the students if they have been accepted to Comprehension Challenge University.
