It isn’t just enough to have your students read then answer questions, you must engage them in the novel and the material. Push their thinking to the higher critical level in order to analyze the novel and make connections. Protest the drill and kill novel and move beyond the worksheet, the question and answer drudgery. Engage your students with movement, technology, pair work and group work. Tap into their creative skills and have them create, allow them to have small group chat circles, play games, and role play. Create silent movies to show comprehension, use roll a question to encourage conversation, create a balloon pop scrambled story activity,etc. (Check out my Teachers Pay Teachers link here to see what I have created to teach the book Rival by Mira Canion. A complete 2-3 week curriculum with all activities and assessments! goo.gl/IvryLP )
Think about what activities you do to differentiate on a daily basis, then apply those same concepts to your novel chapter reviews. By doing so, your students will be engaged and look forward to reading not only the next chapter, but the next book as well!
