I am currently teaching this novel to an Inclusion class. Because of the nature of the class, one of my main problems is that many days, students aren't completing their reading. As we finish the book, I needed to come up with a creative way for apathetic readers to know and understand the novel in order to take a test.
This is what I came up with, and it can be used for anyone (even good readers). For this activity, my students will be using iPads to conduct the research (you could use a computer lab too). I went through some of the different sections/chapters from the novel and found connections with different articles/websites on the internet. Each group has to read an article, and answer questions about the article. Then, they will connect the topic of the article back to the novel. Finally, students will share their findings with the class and teach the class about what they learned.
