Activities include:
PRE-READING to contextualize the novel and make predictions
CHECKING FOR UNDERSTANDING to build key novel-specific vocabulary
PREDICTING to encourage active reading and student buy-in
QUESTIONING to facilitate understanding of author’s intent and characters’ motivation
SUMMARIZING to enhance close-reading and narrative sequencing skills
VISUALIZING to create student ‘mental maps’ of story locations and events
REFLECTING on the novel as a whole

Also included are four wild card activities ♠♥♣♦, which push students into Bloom’s higher-order thinking skills with rich modern tasks such as:
