***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:
Writing a Book Review
Author Biography Research
Venn Diagram – Compare and Contrast
Included in this unit are the Common Core standards that are met for grades 4 - 7.
