This is a 17-page bundle that can be used for any novel. Students have "applied" to a fictitious university known as Discussion University and have the opportunity to prove that they deserve to attend this very prestigious school. It is probably best if students work as whole class or in groups for this.
Once students have a novel to read, divide the book up into 10 days. Once students know the chapters/pages to read for each day, they are ready to read and complete the activities.
Each day, students will need to write down one discussion question (and their own response), along with completing an extension activity. At the end of the packet is a detailed grading rubric that can be used to inform the students if they have been accepted to Discussion University.
