Product Description
I created this resource as a complete novel study unit to engage students in higher-order thinking and analytical reading. It works great for both choice reading units and whole class novels. It is a complete unit to guide students to higher-order analysis of ANY book!

This novel study unit includes the following resources:

The Critical Thinker’s Novel Study:
This novel study engages students with six different literary theory analyses: Formalist, reader response, biographical, historical/cultural, psychological, & Deconstruction. Each "lens" lesson includes directions and an activity. Students will write, research, annotate, and role play. This novel study comes in both digital and print.

Teacher's Guide:
Also included in this unit is a teaching guide and example unit plan for your planning/scheduling with information on how I use each section as a higher-order thinking lesson.

Creative Thinking Project:
The Creative Thinking Project is a project-based assessment that challenges students to create a product using higher-order thinking skills. The goal of the project is to illuminate an aspect of the novel. The project directions, a metacognitive project proposal, and a project rubric are included as both print and digital options.

Vocabulary Bookmarks:
I designed these bookmarks for both functionality and engaged reading. The intention of these bookmarks is to engage students in contextual vocabulary study . Students will use the bookmarks to record challenging words as they read. They will then complete a contextual vocabulary analysis as part of their Formalist analysis. The bookmarks are included as both coloring bookmarks and plain copy bookmarks. They are print only.

Reading Interest Survey:
A print and digital (Google Forms) reading interest survey is included in this unit, which can be used as part of a choice reading assignment.


*This unit is compatible with Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive and includes directions for each. A short video tutorial is also included to assist with saving your document to Google Drive; written directions are included for saving your document to Microsoft OneDrive.*
