Each quarter I have my students read a book of their choice. The purpose was for them to find a book they enjoyed to remind them that reading can be fun. However, I still needed something to demonstrate their reading and understanding of their chosen book.

I created this two-page handout as a novel study that students can complete for any piece of fiction. I divided it into 5 sections (Conflict, Character, Plot, Tone and Theme) with different questions and activities for each section. Also included are opportunities for students to cite their answers (this helped reassure me that they had read the book).

I have found that this is a great alternative from the typical book report or reading journal.
