Novel Study Package - This novel study is great for multiple grade levels because the teacher chooses a selection of novels that are appropriate for the class and the students get to choose what journals they would like to write from a list of 30+ prompts. After completing the journal writing while reading the novel, the students complete a creative activity that is meant to be more polished as their best work. Again, there are several activities from which to choose. The handout contains visuals that stimulate interest, and there are two evaluation rubrics included. Teacher instructions are at the end of the document. I've had great success with this novel study in classes ranging from grades nine to eleven. If you want them to appreciate reading and enjoy the opportunity of having choice, they you will like using this novel study. This self-directed novel study takes from 4-5 weeks to complete on a semester system.
