These general writing activities should be used in addition to novel study packages for beginner to early intermediate novel readers.
In addition to using a more content-centered novel study, these supplementary activities require students to think beyond the facts of the story. The character and plot activities help students consider the structure of the story while the letter, theme, and alternate ending activities require students to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate what they have read.
These activities are sequenced so that students have opportunities to think beyond the knowledge and comprehension level questions for the duration of the novel. The character and letter activities are best used early on, the plot activity should be used from beginning to end, and the theme and alternate ending should be used closer to the end of the novel.
