PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A LONG WAY FROM CHICAGO INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK


*Please Note: The interactive notebook and the book companion are the same activitites, in two different formats. The interactive notebook is filled with cut/paste/fold activities, while the book companion is in traditional worksheet form. Some teachers like to have both for the different needs of their students.*



***FIND LOTS MORE RELAXED NOVEL UNITS HERE***


This novel study is designed to be a relaxed unit for both teacher and students. You will notice that I do not include quizzes or tests in any of my novel studies or interactive notebooks. As an English teacher, I prefer to not use reading as a time to test using multiple choice, true or false, fill-in-the-blank, or matching assessments. I want my students to enjoy reading and not have worry about what's coming when they are done.


Your students will work on the following tasks:

Note Taking

Character Identification

Chapter Summaries

Dictionary Work

Writing Poetry

Present-Tense Verbs

Quoting

Writing a Book Review

Author Biography Research

Setting

Conflict

Resolution

Protagonist
