Student Selected Novel Study and Booktalks are a wonderful way to get kids interested in reading!

Novel study meets student choice! I created this project to encourage my students to choose a fictional text that truly interests them and convince others to read it too! This packet includes weekly activities to keep kids on a reading timeline and for teachers to do a quick check of their comprehension. It also includes directions for a booktalk presentation which is the culminating activity after reading the book.

Check Up and Booktalk Skills Addressed:

★ Making Connections

★ Vocabulary Development

★ Mood and Tone

★ Character Analysis

★ Plot

★ Theme

★ Setting

★ Conflict

This project offers students choice, gives many opportunities for teachers to do mini-lessons and formative assessments, as well as offers a written and spoken evaluation option! A rubric is included with CCSS standards for grades 6-10. Point value can be filled in by individual teachers.

These activities would also work well with literature group novel studies.
