This Word document is a summary of the novel in "Fill in the Blanks" format. There are seven pages for students to complete.
Students demonstrate their understanding of the plot by completing the cloze test. Instead of giving students a summary of the plot as notes, I think that students learn better when they actively construct their own. However, for some students this can be a daunting task. I use this technique as a support to students to assist them write their own summary. I also use this to ensure that students have completed independent reading.
This is the type of activity that can be used again for revision. It's a great way to sum up without actually doing all of the work for them. And, they enjoy doing this activity!!
There is a word bank at the end of each section to help students. As this is a Word document, you could remove this to make the activity more challenging.
The solution is also included (13 pages in total).
