Product Description
Planning a high-quality novel study can take hours of your precious time, and those long list of chapter questions often results in little-to-no skill transfer beyond the book. Now you can teach those challenging reading comprehension skills like text analysis, inference, and cause & effect through novels without having to spend all the hours preparing for your literature circles and book clubs. Plus, you can rest assured your students are developing stronger skills in text analysis and deep thinking about literature through The Best School Year Ever by Barbara Robinson.

This no fluff novel study format engages students, but it doesn't overwhelm your book groups/literature circles with countless chapter questions that just require them to regurgitate the text.

Instead, each day's lesson targets one key comprehension skill essential for reading success and the entire day's lesson can be just focused on building that skill. When it comes time to respond, students are asked to use critical thinking skills and combine their own thoughts and opinions with the text to go beyond just a basic understanding of the plot .

Designed to be used whole-class, small group, or as an individual book study. Each section of the no prep, foldable trifolds aligns with state and Common Core standards and is designed to engage even your most hesitant readers.

Skills addressed:
✔Point of View
✔Cause & Effect
✔Making Inferences
✔Analyzing Text and Characters
And so much more!
