Rather than long, boring discussion questions, have your students play Novel Bingo!
Novel Bingo is a fun and different way to assess comprehension of a novel. Activities incorporate literary elements, textual evidence, and critical thinking with art and real world tasks.
Novel Bingo can be used with any novel! It can be played individually, with partners, or with groups. My students loved playing this with A Long Way Gone!
Teachers select the bingo piece. The students check to see if their bingo card has the corresponding piece. They mark it and complete the task. There are three different bingo cards in PDF, but they all have the same tasks.
