PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With these great no-prep printable activities, you'll start every discussion with engaged students. Each activity gives students a chance to review the previous night's reading with an engaging 10-15 minute assignment.

Assignments include creating a comic strip version of the text, writing script for a talk show with characters as guests, creating an iPod playlist for a character, identifying key events from the reading in a timeline, designing a piece of graffiti for a character, and many more. All the activities call upon students to make key connections to the text so they have reviewed the reading and are prepared to discuss it.

These activities can be done individually, in pairs, or in small groups. They can be graded or ungraded. An Educator's Guide is included in the packet.

*This item is also available at a reduced rate as part of my ELA Activities Bundle.*

I have adapted some of these activities to cater to teachers who prefer handouts specifically tailored to certain books. Please be aware that if you buy The Hunger Games Unit Activities, The Hobbit Unit Activities, or The Harry Potter Unit Activities, you will see versions of these printables. Please do not accidentally buy the same product twice!
