  • Detailed Teacher Notes/Teaching Aspects for ENTIRE Novel: When I read through the novel, I essentially took detailed notes so I would not have to re-read each section the night before teaching it. I took the reading and separated it into sections in which I wrote out a summary of each section and then a detailed analysis. The analysis focuses on different scenes in the reading that serve as teaching aspects, how the section ties in with the rest of the novel/scaffolding, and in-depth/thoughtful discussion questions to use with your class as you read. Instead of re-reading the book before class, I just look over my summary and analysis notes before class.
