Interactive Notebook Reading Literature Bundle for Any Novel or Story (Grades 6-12)

This IS included in my Interactive Reading Notebook Mega Bundle.

A YEAR'S WORTH: Over 90 Common-Core aligned interactive reading foldable activities for secondary students. (Many can be used for 5th grade students, as well.) You do not have to use the Common Core State Standards to utilize this bundle! Read on for all the skills practiced.

Students will practice numerous skills, including: making inferences (inferring), analyzing theme, determining and evaluating the sequence of events and author's pacing, identifying and defining figurative language examples, analyzing the author's tone, author's purpose, character motivations and interactions, analyzing dialogue, deciphering point-of-view, summarizing, and predicting future events.

Additional skills include comparing themes in contemporary literature with themes from Shakespeare, Ovid, the Bible, and mythology; comparing the story/book with artwork, movies, and audio versions; comparing works from differing genres; analyzing the author's use of sarcasm and satire; and analyzing word connotations and multiple-meaning words.

NO GLUE REQUIRED: Secondary teachers are pressed for time with our students, so most of my activities are easy to cut and don't even require glue! Besides, glue is messy and takes much longer to use (who wants to write on soggy paper?). Students can use tape or staples for all of them. Of course, if they prefer glue, it can still be used on the activities. See the preview download for images of the activities.

I included a teacher's visual guide with images of each activity and explanation of how it is folded/assembled.

The following Common Core State Standards are practiced for grades 6-12:

Reading (Literature): RL.1, RL.2, RL.3, RL.4, RL.5, RL.6, RL.7, and RL.9

Language (Vocabulary): L.4, L.5
