When starting a new novel, I like to give my class an introduction into what they will be reading. This power point introduces Chasing Vermeer by asking kids to predict what the story will be about, introducing the author, introducing Vermeer, and giving a 3-2-1 Bridge to access their knowledge and feelings about art. The opening bridge activity should be repeated at the end of the novel study and compared to the introductory questions.
