For years I have been trying a variety of ways to run my Novel Study groups, including Literature Circles, graphic organizers, and countless ideas from workbooks and the Internet. Although many of these resources provided a framework for my Novel Studies, I felt they were either too complicated, not user friendly, or lacked the higher level thinking skills that I was seeking for my students.
While completing some studies a couple of years ago, I was reminded that my role in teaching students how to construct their own questions is extremely important in comprehension development. That is when I began to develop the idea of teaching my Novel Studies through question construction.
This has been highly productive, as my students have increased their reading skills, as well as their question asking abilities. They find this activity engaging and have a great deal of fun interacting with their teammates.
I believe you will find this resource to be a benefit to your reading instruction!
