has moved to the forefront of elementary classrooms, thanks in large part to The Common Core and 21st century learning. Students as young as 7 and 8-years-old are being asked to think critically about texts across genres.
As such, I have created a novel study that deviates from a traditional one. This version approaches the text, Jake Drake, Bully Buster, through a text-dependent reading lens. The questions in this novel study move fluidly among the 4 levels outlined below to give students a robust, deep understanding of the text.
♦ Level 1 – What Does the Text Say?
Key Ideas and Details
♦ Level 2 – How Does the Text Work?
♦ Level 3 - What Does the Text Mean?
♦ Level 4 - What Does the Text Inspire You to Do?
Opinion with Evidence of Argument
Designed for complex and close reading, the questions in this novel study are labeled according to the levels and descriptors above to ensure that your students are thinking deeply about the text.
