Interactive Notebook, Foldables, Character Analysis, Characterization, Novel Study, Reading
Looking for a new way for your students to review significant elements in a book? There are five different types of foldables included in this file, which will be used to reflect a variety of important elements within Rodman Philbrick's novel, Freak the Mighty
. Also, three writing frames
have been included for students who need to organize their thoughts, before putting their ideas onto the foldable.
This reading strategy is not meant to replace the play study; rather, to encourage a new way of thinking, while completing the assigned tasks (perhaps for additional credit, homework activities, or for those early finishers!)
• This foldable examines character, theme, and setting. Students will look closely at the characters Freak and Max.
• This foldable examines vocabulary and language. Students will evaluate words, phrases, and terms that are significant to the book.
• This foldable examines a character in depth. Students will select their character of choice and take a deeper look into their physical, mental and emotional elements, such as Grim, Gram, Fair Gwen, etc. Included are a total of 8 separate foldables for individual character analysis.
• This foldable examines one self, text, world, and peer connection. It will evaluate individual comprehension and promotes a new way of thinking.
• This foldable examines as many self, text, world, and peer connections (as suggested by the individual teacher).
*Editable rubric included!
Whether you are a veteran, or new to the interactive foldable concept, it’s a great way to engage your students and the foldables can easily be added to an existing novel study!
