Mini Book Novel Study
The following 24 pages were created for a 7th grade novel study. I have successfully used these pages as part of an independent novel study and as part of a class novel study. Some of the pages use "Thinking Maps" for creating non-linguistic representations of characters and character traits, some of the pages require specific types of writing, but all of these pages can be completed independently by the student.
I recommend copying these pages using the "magazine" sort style and creating a booklet for the students. I then add an additional blank page, frequently of colored paper, as a cover, and require students to create a book jacket, including illustration and author biography, for the packet. These pages are not specific to any one novel and can be used for all genres.
