Novel Think-Tac-Toe is a great way to assess your students’ understanding of any novel they read. After finishing their novel, students choose between 9 activities to complete. The activities require students to engage in analytical and creative thinking. Activities include writing a poem comparing and contrasting the reader to a character in the novel, choosing a song that represents a theme found in the novel and explaining how it expresses the theme, predicting what the character’s life will be like in 20 years and writing a feature article on them, creating a model of a key place in the novel and explaining its significance, etc… Two Novel Think-Tac-Toes are included. One is designed for higher performing students and the other for struggling students.
