{99 Novel} Series provides support materials to teachers to facilitate superior instruction. Wouldn't it be nice to have notecards already on-hand to provide to INCLUSION students who need them? How about Kinesthetic activities that cross novel borders...things like sorting Character Cards into stacks of Protagonists, Antagonists, Major Characters, Supporting Characters?

What about vocabulary? Reading Comprehension is impossible without adequate background knowledge and appropriate vocabulary. Won't it be great to already have key vocabulary terms on-hand, ready to go, in advance, to prep your students? You can provide sets to lower level students, use them as scaffolding support during formative assessments, and even use them to teach study skills and allow students to make their own notations on the cards.

Need some rigorous "filler" material? Pull out a stack of character cards and start asking (with the information right at your fingertips) questions right down the line from Bloom's Taxonomy: who did what? Why did she do that? Would you have done the same thing, why or why not? Now justify why you might do the opposite of what you just answered. If this character was transported into Hogwartz, what would she do based on what you know of her personality?

This set contains both the Character Cards and over a dozen pages of terminology and vocabulary. These notecards will save you from at least 100 unnecessary questions! Herman Melville's Billy Budd is a great classic. Start your {99 Novel} collection today!
