PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Word document is a synopsis of the plot of the novel in "Fill in the blanks" format. It is divided into individual chapter units. Students demonstrate their understanding of the plot by completing the cloze.

I find this a very useful approach with weaker students (who struggle to write their own summaries) at the end of each chapter. Alternatively I use it as an aid to revision, when we have finished the novel. In this case, it suits both strong and weak students.

It is an active learning activity. A word bank is supplied, but you could redact this to make the task more challenging.
All of my students love filling in the blanks. They get a great sense of achievement from this activity.

There are 25 pages in total. The exercise consists of 17 pages (one page for each chapter). The remaining pages contain the solution.

Download the preview file to see the assignment for chapter 1. Even if you don't purchase this product, it will give you a useful exercise for the first chapter.
