Engaging students in authentic literature inspires students to read more and develop a lifelong love of reading. In a world where testing is a priority, there is not always time for in depth novel studies.
I think it is important for students to understand we do not learn common core standards as skills in isolation for a test.
That is why I am developing novel studies that address the common core literature standards at varying levels according to Bloom’s Taxonomy. Through this novel study, students will apply each common core literature standard to an authentic text.
It is my hope that as students work their way through the novel, they find themselves deeply engaged and understanding how the literature standards apply to life and future texts.
This well help students prepare for life, learning, and testing.
