Students can demonstrate their understanding of a text by completing this graphic organizer. Have students complete one as they read, or review several chapters by assigning each group a chapter to represent. Display for an instant bulletin board that reviews a novel. This is a great activity for a station rotation or literature circles.
For a more collaborative and interactive lesson, check out the digital version in my store. It's an especially effective tool for reviewing several chapters or a shared novel. Have students work collaboratively on a chapter slide. Then all students have access to a review of the entire book.
