This is a novel exploration guide that can be used for any novel. There are places to record vocabulary, and take notes. Then, there are a series of mini projects that students are required to complete as they read their novel. These mini projects are designed to get them thinking about what they are reading in different ways and to teach them different methods of interpreting text. A rubric is included in the novel study guide so teachers may break down and explain exactly how students will be graded.
This novel study is great to use with in class reading, outside reading books, and literature circles.
Please feel free to alter this assignment to best suit the needs of your students and your classroom.
