Online Novel Study: RASCAL by Sterling North
Are you tired of making huge novel packets and the same old boring pen and pencil paperwork that typical novel studies seem to offer? Do you want to find an easier and more engaging way to get your students to engage with their class novel? If you answered YES to any of these questions, this is EXACTLY what you have been looking for!
This is an interactive webpage (direct link and URL provided) that allows students to actively engage and reflect upon the novel as they read, in a meaningful and engaging way. Activities include reading about WWI, the flu pandemic, creating character sketches, fun and elaborate Writer's Notebook entries that relate to online findings, thoughtful comprehension questions, and more!
Links to all documents are through Google Docs. This means, as a teacher, you can make a copy (or have your students copy) of the link into your Google Docs account and edit any document provided. This also means simple printing if you wish to offer paper copies of any handout. This is user friendly and allows for a combination of online and offline use!
Enjoy the novel and I look forward to your feedback as your students dive into this book and their online study adventure!
*** Disclosure: Yes, I give permission for any teacher who purchases this to post it on their class webpage. It is so necessary to make links easily accessible in a 21st century learning environment!
