PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Plot summary of the novel (part by part) which students create by completing an events ordering / time line task.

The sentences which give a summary of each part, are not in the proper sequence. Students are asked to number each event in the correct order. On average there are 12 events for each part of the novel.
A very useful second task is to get students to write out their solution, thus creating their own summary of each part.

Students who complete this task will have a comprehensive summary of the plot that they have created themselves. Instead of just presenting them with notes on the novel, they are actively learning while creating their own.

It looks easy, but this can be quite challenging. This activity is an excellent group work activity. Students practice team work, speaking, listening, and (hopefully!) compromising skills. Writing out their answers is a task I usually assign as homework.

This is a Word document. There are 8 pages for students to complete. The 3 page solution is also included.
